The Jamin Puech line of Alcantara accessories grew from an experimental project with both emerging and established designers developed by  A di Alcantara, the fashion group within  Alcantara S.p.A.

The project has provided Alcantara with new and original interpretations of its material, highlighting its versatility, high tech characteristics and endless design possibilities.

The Jamin Puech brand is well known for its careful attention to materials and continuous search for innovation.  Founded in Paris in 1990 by designers Isabelle Puech and Benoît Jamin, the French brand offers an infinite range of colors and combinations of materials that make their collections of bags and small accessories unique. The brand stands out for its originality, wide variety, quality of workmanship and a constant renewal of styles.

Hundreds of yards of Alcantara have been turned into ribbons and combined with raffia, one of the distinguishing features of the Jamin Puech brand.  The result of this combination is a collection that breaks with tradition, showcasing the contemporaneity of the French fashion house and the versatility of Alcantara. 

Jamin Puech has created four styles for A di Alcantara, each available in four color and patchwork variations:

  • A two-colored tone on tone cocktail bag with a bouclé effect, pearl decorations and leather strap.
  • A tote with leather handles and wooden clasp.
  • A clutch with metal clasp and leather handle.
  • A mini clutch with metal clasp.

The Alcantara collection was recently presented to the press and buyers at the Jamin Puech Showroom in Rue de Provence 46, Paris, and will go on sale next February.
