Since 1900…

The history of Tanneries Pechdo goes back to 1900 in Millau and has been telling since how visionary men with convictions managed to adapt products and know-how to time evolutions.
The first one was Joseph Carrière, whose family had a long tradition in leather. In 1900 he created Tannerie Pechdo to produce white vegetal calf. In 1906, he already evolves to black and colour Box-calf leathers which thanks to its suppleness and great tanning quality had a good success, under ‘Abeille’ branding, with shoe producers. The workshop expends and moves then to rue Rajol in Millau. When Joseph Pechdo dies in 1915, his widow runs the daily business with the help of Albin Rabe and later with her son in law, Joseph Pechdo, who takes the lead in 1921.
