MINI SORBONNE
Orange leather bag

345 €

1952. A student slips Albert Camus' The Stranger into her school bag. She walks lightly up Boulevard Saint-Michel towards the Sorbonne, the oldest university in France, where the youth of her time is gathering: a generation that wants to forget the war. At 29 du Boul'Mich", the student stops in front of a new shoe store. The window sparkles with joy and bright colors! The "C" of Carel, the name of its founders Georges and Rosa, stamps the collection.  

2022. As a tribute to its 70-year history, Carel imagines the Mini Sorbonne. This irresistible little brother of the Sorbonne plays on the codes of the old-fashioned schoolbag, with its thin, adjustable shoulder strap, its organic linen lining and its vintage "C" logo.  

For a chic and casual look, eternally Parisian!

Care advice

Taking care of your leather goods :

- Remove impurities that have slipped in the leather with a cloth or a brush.

- Apply a nourishing cream with a slightly lighter colour to preserve the original colour (to accentuate the colour, take a darker colour).

- Using small circular strokes, spread the product over the surface with a soft cloth.

- Let it dry in the open air for a while. Once dry, brush them.

- Spread the necessary amount for the entire shoe directly on a cloth and then massage the leather in a circular and light way: by wetting the cloth with some water you will obtain a glazing effect of the waxing.

- Let dry and rub with a soft cloth.

Carel’s Advice

Waxing is to be used alternately with the nourishing cream: after 3 or 4 consecutive waxings, use the cream the next time.
