Fauré Le Page was originally established in Paris in 1716 as a manufacturer of firearms. They supplied prestigious clientele such as King Louis XVI and Napoleon Bonaparte with high quality weapons and quickly gained a reputation for precision. In addition to creating firearms, they also began making holsters and gun bags. In 2009, the brand was acquired by Augustin de Buffévent who broke with company tradition and switched from weapons creation into the realm of high quality leather and canvas goods. In a nod to its past, the company’s motto is “Armed for Seduction.”
