The Moynat Monogram: An Iconic Tradition That Remains Relevant

In 1905 Art Deco artist Henri Rapin joined Moynat. His talent as a graphic designer was ahead of its time, and much the lettering he created for the Maison still remains.


The Moynat Monogram is one of the House’s most treasured assets, an exclusive service that invites clients to personalise their coveted piece and become the owner of an exclusive creation.


Each order placed is an invitation for clients to not only experience exceptional leather goods but also; remarkable care and a unique piece. Since 1849, the House has decorated items including bags and luggage trunks with clients’ names, stripes and family crests.



This intimate hand-painted tradition resonates to this day with both initial design and unique lettering available upon request.


Each letter is individually painted in Moynat’s Parisian studio in either an archival font from the House’s history or a design newly imagined for the owner.


Each order is personally handled by the in-house team and created individually to meet each customer’s needs.
