Brontibay’s story begins in Australia. In a Melbourne café, one day Penelope served a cappuccino to Olivier, an energetic globe trotter.
One year later Penelope, a ceramic artist with a creative soul, took off and found herself in Paris to join Olivier. The adventure became more and more creative when the couple created and sold their first bags at a Paris flea market called “Marché Malik.”
The couple then created Brontibay, an acronym of Byron Bay and Brontë Beach, their two favourite places in Sydney, Australia.
In 1996, after only two shows, Brontibay began exporting its creations throughout the world.
Today, the adventure continues with Brontibay’s lovely collection of wallets and other accessories made from their trademark gathered leather.
After opening their first boutique in the trendy Marais neighborhood in Paris, another shop was soon launched in the Paris Opéra district.
A focus on Parisian elegance that is just as fashionable as it is easy to wear!
