Camargue craftsmanship

Camarguaise boots

Crafted out of calf leather, tanned with chestnut tree bark and mimosa, assembled with special stitching and over eighty nails, these boots are not only worn by gardians and manadiers, but by many people passionate about products which are both natural and traditionally made.

Camargue saddles
Valuable working tools, these are the saddles used by local gardians, as they are both beautiful and comfortable enough to be sat on for hours. The cantle and pommel are set higher than on traditional saddles and the stirrups are closed at the front. The manufacture of a Camargue saddle requires hours of mounting and stitching by a saddler. They are paired with the traditional couverton (a brown and white chequered saddle blanket).
