Founded in 1958, La Botte Gardiane manufactures shoes with the authentic smell of French leather. Though it keeps one foot in the past, their Paris boutique contains enough creativity for a promising future!

Scent of the South

It started as a family business based in Villetelle, at the gateway to the Camargue region, manufacturing boots for the 'gardians' (the cattle herding cowboys of the Camargue). Their hallmark: thick, supple leather that is comfortable and durable. Over the years, the range expanded to include fashionable and customised models, which became popular sellers. In 2012, the company opened a shop in Paris in the fashion district of La Bastille.

Straddling traditions!

Certified as an 'Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant' (Living Heritage Company ) in 2007 for its outstanding artisanal know how, La Botte Gardiane has stayed true to its course! All models are still handmade in the production workshop in the Camargue. Cutting, assembly, gluing and finishing are painstaking processes. Straddling traditions, they also openly embrace modernity to meet the tastes of fashionable Parisians…

Brigitte, 39 MOTHER

Mother, bohemian and Parisian, I love Paris' cosmopolitan side and warmth. Exhibitions, walks, outings with the children...I'll take you on a discovery of the most welcoming places in Paris. My little extra: with my love of food as my compass, I always set course for the best lemon tarts in the city.
