The Big One - handmade belt bags from Paris, in african wax fabric


Leonie is the designer behind our brand Baobab Paris. She created the brand of fanny packs in 2019


I'm Leonie! Passionate about travel and dance, a few years ago, I realized that there was a lack of a lightweight, practical, and trendy fanny pack that would allow people to go out and travel freely without any burden. As an adventurous and challenge-driven person, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create this much-needed accessory. And thus, the Baobab Paris adventure began!

While developing a few prototypes, I quickly discovered that I wasn't the only one feeling this need. My Brazilian dance community, particularly the forró enthusiasts, showed great enthusiasm, and the orders started pouring in. Today, with my online store, regular presence in creator markets, and collaborations with boutiques across France, Baobab Paris has become a reality!

All my bags are carefully and lovingly crafted in collaboration with Uddin and Josna in their small workshop in the 19th arrondissement of Paris. 

Don't hesitate to contact me for any questions, suggestions, or special requests, whether it's for custom-made items or corporate gifts. I'm here to accompany you on your adventures!

See you soon,
