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 3000 people work for Longchamp and 45% of them are employed in France.
