The Petit Flot bucket bag is a reedition inspired by an original jacquard canvas model from our archives dating back to the 1960s. It incorporates the original bag’s main codes, in a more modern version.
This bucket bag is named “Petit Flot” as a reference to the original trade of the Goyard Family, who had been timber raftsmen for generations prior to founding the Maison. The log drive traditionally had two legs: first, the Petit Flot, which consisted in bringing the wood to the banks of the River Yonne where the logs were temporarily stacked, pending the Grand Flot in the spring, when all the logs were gathered in the downstream ports and assembled in huge wood trains that would leave for Paris to supply the city with fire wood.
The shape of the bucket bag is notably reminiscent of that of the “dinner holder”, a small pewter bucket that the log drivers used to carry their lunch.
