Isaac Sellam built his own inimitable universe from a childhood dream of working with leather. At just 16, he designed and sewed his first jacket in his parents’ kitchen.

After 15 years studying and testing leathers and techniques, the French designer founded his eponymous brand Isaac Sellam Experience in 2002. He transformed his Paris studio into a research laboratory dedicated to leather innovation.

Leather has always been the focus of Isaac Sellam’s work. He collaborated with the finest tanners and pioneered new ways of working with the material. Rather than intellectualizing the process, Isaac follows his instincts and emotions to create imaginative, inspired designs. His mastery of technique enabled him to work with complicated skins like crocodile and python, imitating textile fibers for a new product experience.
