The Longchamp Brand
The emblematic horse logo is a symbol of the company’s inception. There is a famous horse race track in Paris called Longchamp or "long field."
Just next door was an old mill that Monsieur Cassegrain - which means "miller" in French - used to pass in front of every day.
The company soon found its name: it being only a short trot from the miller and onto the race track, the way was fore trod!
More than 2,200 people work for Longchamp and more than half of them are employed in France.
