Betty Hemmings Leathergoods (Toronto, Canada) and Troubadour (London, England) agree to a Canadian retail distribution agreement of modern and functional leather goods.
TORONTO, November 1, 2017- Betty Hemmings Leathergoods and Troubadour today announced the signing of a retail and e-commerce distribution agreement in Canada.
“Troubadour’s pursuit of well-designed, high-quality essentials for today’s modern lifestyle has thrust them into the global spotlight,” explains Betty Hemmings Leathergoods President and CEO Michael Warwick. “While many European-made leather-goods have not generally evolved to meet today’s demanding lifestyles, Troubadour’s brilliantly crafted and functionally designed bags have differentiated Troubadour in the marketplace.”
Troubadour’s classic yet durable products combine function and style with uncompromising materials and the skills of craftspeople who are passionate about making exceptional goods. “We are thrilled to partner with Troubadour, whose dedication to quality and obsession with details exemplifies what Betty Hemmings Leathergoods has been committed to for almost 40 years – curating the most finely crafted leather goods the world has to offer,” explains Alexandra Warwick, SVP Sale & Marketing.
What started out as a pursuit of well-designed, high-quality leather essentials that could transition seamlessly from a business trip to a casual weekend away, evolved into the birth of Troubadour. Founders Samuel Bail and Abel Samet’s quest led them to create leather goods made in small quantities by Italian artisans who would deliver the best quality. The brand’s clean aesthetic provides intelligent design for today’s busy world.
“Retailers like Betty Hemmings Leathergoods understand that they are a crucial part of a team dedicated to excellence in products and service,” said Samuel Bail, Co-Founder of Troubadour. “They connect with customers and communicate the artisanal premium that comes with the best quality. Betty Hemmings Leathergoods understands what authentic quality and craftsmanship really is – we share the same values.”
