Purse shop in Paris near Catherines??

Can anyone help me "re-find" a small shop that sells made-in-france purses and leather goods. It is just down the street (around a block, I recall) from Catherines (the discount perfume store). They sell a limited number of designs, each in a multitude of colors and textures. I believe the shop is run by an Asian man (Korean??) and the only clue I found on one of the leather backpacks I purchased is the name "Frederic." Many thanks to anyone who can help me overcome this senior momment and remember the name of this fine shop.

There is a leather goods store called "Kuzu" on rue St Honore. Maybe that is it...

If it's Frederic T, sold by binkbags, I found another website that also sells them

Unfortunately that doesn't help find the shop in Paris.

Just back from 12 days in France. This may be it. Maraquinerie Saint Honore. Address 334 Rue Saint Honore. I am looking at a business card that an Asian shop owner gave me. The picture of the store front on the business card reads "334 Papeterie Maroquinerie" and below that says B.Biberon & Fils

Maraquinerie Saint Honore is a wonderful little store -- I buy one or two bags there everytime I'm in Paris. There's a fun store next to it that sells kitcheny stuff - porcelain, little appetizer accessories, clocks, etc.

Eureka!! That is definitely the store! Thanks to all for the thoughtful and prompt responses. If anyone else is interested, this is a fun store for purses: a huge array of colors and styles not found elsewhere. Prices are very reasonable. I will buy one or two more purses here on my next trip to Paris to add to my collection.
