About Carmen Jean

Carmen Jean Logo

We are a small family business, located in the Dordogne region in the south west of France. All the products we sell, are handmade by us in our studio. We do not buy in finished products from abroad to resell. We primarily make handbags, small pouches, toiletry bags, wallets and purses, but we also make a wide range of other products too.

At the moment, we buy small amounts of each fabric, to enable us to have a larger range of styles and colours. Our colours and fabrics change regularly, so most products are limited!

We attend a few markets and fairs in the area, especially in the Summer months. 

We will soon be able to take on wholesale accounts, and if you are interested in stocking our products in your store, please Contact Us

We rarely make 'bespoke' designs, as we have set patterns for our bags. 

Many may notice that some products have a label that say 'Expressive Threads'. This is because we are in the process of separating our products between the two names. Carmen Jean will be for all the bags and accessories that we make, while Expressive Threads will be for all our other homeware products.

If you would like to collect your purchases from our studio in Le Pizou (Dordogne - dpt 24), please contact us for a time and date. Cheques are NOT accepted.
