Moreau Paris history began in Paris in 1882. Martin-Guillaume Biennais, a revolutionary cabinetmaker and official supplier of Emperor Napoleon I, affirmed his expertise within the exclusive circle of luxury leather goods manufacturers. At a later stage, the artisans took over his cabinet and established the Maison, giving it the roots to grow into the luxury powerhouse it is today. The iconic patterning of Moreau is inspired by the intertwining of wicker stems, which formed the structure of different travel goods in the late 19th century. The Maison combined tradition and innovation to cultivate its own authentic style.
