French company Longchamp was founded by Jean Cassegrain in 1948. It originally employed individual craftsmen in the Loire Valley countryside to create leather coverings for tobacco pipes and other smoking products. By 1955, Longchamp expanded to include small leather goods, opening its first factory in Segre. Throughout the years, Longchamp became known for its lightweight travel bags, and now also produces clothing, scarves, and other fashion accessories. The founder's son, Philippe Cassegrain, is the current company president. In 1993, Longchamp introduced a collection of foldable travel bags "Le Pliage" which popularity has penetrated into various new markets all around the world. In addition, Longchamp has cultivated a devoted following and brand now known for its designs and ventured into partnerships with notable designers, artist and celebrities creating special collection.
