"In 1829, Charles Delvaux added a shop window to his Brussels studio. His handcrafted travel trunks quickly gained universal admiration amongst the cognoscenti. In 1883, Delvaux became a warrant holder to the Court of Belgium. And, in 1898, the House was the first to patent a model (the Edison trunk). Spurred on by this success, the range was further extended to include luggage, boxes, suitcases, and more. Never forgetting ladies’ handbags, which the House has offered since the beginning of the 20th century." You can read more here.

Delvaux is currently having an exhibition at MoMu Fashion Museum in Antwerp. If you go, try to stay at Hotel Julien!

Delvaux - the world’s oldest fine leather goods firm - has created a limited edition Newspaper Bag for the magazine Monocle.
