Hajar el aswad ‘the black stone’ in literary Arabic.

Aswad is a leather workshop founded in Paris in 2015. Our identity is located at the crossroads of Moroccan and French craftsmanship and in our attachment to the preservation of traditional skills. We aspire to make functional, aesthetic, handcrafted pieces with a contemporary take on artisanal practices.

Aswad founder Sonia Ahmimou confronts her heritage with a saddlery and leather goods practice acquired over 10 years in the workshops of Louis Vuitton, Moynat and Hermès.
