“The game bag”, originally called cartridge bag, has the most revisited design in fashion history and represents a classic model in leatherwork, to the extent that its hunting origins are sometimes forgotten.
Spotted on the muses of Helmut Newton and on the shoulders of the Ibiza crowd in the 70’s, this bag has been the darling of the most stylish avant-garde girls since the 20’s. It should be noted that Chanel’s Boy bag is unisex and was inspired from the game bag that Coco Chanel used to borrow from her lover, a hunter. Similarly, the Saint Cloud bag by Louis Vuitton was created based on the design of the hunting bag. While men usually prefer the large version in town or for hunting, no size is exclusive to women. The elegant and rebellious Laure Hutton, model, actress, globetrotter and adventuress is this bag’s ambassador by excellence. It only gets more beautiful and chic with time, as its unique patina deepens and the leather softens.
Year after year, Maison Mareuil refine their precious savoir-faire in the field of hunting equipment, as much as in their choices of leathers of the highest quality and their attention to detail. Their timeless bags have sometimes been in the catalogue for more than 35 years and for generations, on the shoulders of their loyal customers.
Made with exceptional expertise by craftsmen and women for the sophisticated hunting community, your game bag is a great investment.
