Our Commitment to Intentionality and Transparency
All Charles Simon products are crafted by hand in Canada in our Montreal-based atelier. We work with trusted local suppliers and execute our intricate in-house manufacturing process with the utmost precision and care. Our skilled artisans imbue each handmade piece with their years of expertise, a deep appreciation for the craft, and immaculate attention to detail.
We prioritize working with suppliers and manufacturers with whom we have longstanding relationships based on transparency and mutual trust. The premium leather in our accessories comes from Remy Carriat, a renowned, family-owned tannery in the South of France, which works according to the highest industry standards. The interior of our products is lined with Alcantara®, a soft yet durable fabric produced by the first Italian company to achieve carbon neutrality status. Using such refined materials provides the foundation for the outstanding quality of Charles Simon accessories.
We believe in slow consumption— an approach that values intentionality and longevity over fast-paced consumerism. The durability of our products is supported by our commitment to quality. Our handmade luxury accessories are not just for a day; they are timeless companions crafted to elevate your journey per diem.
Our Original collection features particularly dense and sturdy Canadian log-drive wood that has been rescued and recycled from local bodies of water. By extracting these century-old sunken treasures, we are clearing the beds of lakes and rivers, avoiding deforestation and bringing nature back to life in the hands of our expert craftsmen, all while getting to celebrate our Canadian roots.
