Our story

ARTISAN LEATHER GOODS MANUFACTURE

1932

In 1932, Joseph Aranda founded Sacar® in Saint Chamond (42), a company specialising in the manufacture of upholstery and upholstery for the automobile industry.

After the war, the workshop refocussed itself on the high-end manufacture of rigid moulded leather cases for the photographic market, using their rare and unparalleled expertise in stitching at an angle of 90°.

THE TRADITION

1965

In 1965, Joseph Aranda's two sons, Paul and Claude, one a leather goods maker and the other a sheath maker, joined the company and thus the Sacar® values of tradition and excellence were born.
Under their guidance, Sacar® was to become the European leader in photographic bags thanks to a cutting-edge manufacturing approach, supported by the technical and artisanal know-how required to produce high-end French leather goods.
During the same period, Sacar® was also one of the French leaders in the design and manufacture of hunting accessories.

SURROUNDINGS

1990

Sacar®, the French leather goods manufacturer, is now located in Sorbiers (42) near Saint-Etienne, which is designated as a UNESCO city of design, and 30 minutes from Lyon (69). This location in the heart of France between industrial dynamism and creative spirit makes it an accessible and close partner.

LUXURY LEATHER GOODS

2000

High-end leather goods have emerged as an extension of our story, complementing our long-standing experience in protective cases for technical equipment. Indeed, our understanding of the carrying bag, the equipment case and the custom-made cover here at Sacar®, made with increasing levels of quality, have been drivers in our search for excellence in the world of luxury leather goods.

In 2001, Sacar® was taken over by a group with a wide range of industrial activities, and continued to develop while preserving the expertise and quality so dear to its craftsmen.
