N0.1: Etienne Aigner
Etienne Aigner was raised in a close-knit Jewish household in Hungary, where he learned the value of education and hard labour. He worked as a carpet merchant, a window dresser and a light bulb salesman as a young man.
Aigner then learnt to manufacture purses from a colleague in what he described as a "fortunate accident" while apprenticing under a well-known bookbinder in Paris.
Since this time, the team at Etienne Aigner have continued to build on their founder's legacy, with many innovative handbags, shoe and accessory features inspired by his initial designs.
From the; unique logo, signature hardware, braided leathers and wicker handbags, many elements of this ecommerce store and its products are simply just timeless hallmarks of Etienne Aigner’s heritage.

- At Palette, we strive to offer you artist-selected colours, premium quality, free from harmful ingredients, at the best prices.” - Palette
So, if you’re in the market for a splash of something new and are feeling overwhelmed by the plethora of possibilities available in a traditional paint store, give Palette’s selection of 50 hues a try.
Before you can make a purchase from Palette with the store’s sample stickers, simply perform a test run to determine the best hue for your space based on the changing light conditions throughout the day.
So, say goodbye to mess, waste and mismatched colours. This luxury home accessories brand will have you covered with all of the necessary supplies and the highest-quality tools in one convenient kit.
