HISTORY OF THE HOUSE
EXCELLENCE IN LEATHER GOODS MADE IN FRANCE.
The Grandval brand was born in 2019 from a simple idea: to offer watches and beautiful leather objects inspired by the '60s and '70s, the golden age of creativity in both design and music. Ideals of freedom and faith in the future guided the most creative minds back then. It's these ideals and this energy that guide us today.
Grandval develops in-house, and with the help of rigorously selected partners, watches designed, tested, adjusted and assembled in France, as well as leather accessories manufactured on the banks of the Loire in our partner workshop, holder of the precious label EPV "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant".
The name Grandval is a tribute to the now-defunct château of the same name, once located to the south-east of Paris in the inner suburbs. Numerous personalities stayed there, including Diderot, who spent several periods there while writing his famous encyclopedia. The château gave its name to the neighborhood where Thomas, the brand's founder, grew up. The story had come full circle.
