Delvaux Maroquinerie

04 Jan

I have never heard of Delvaux Maroquinerie until recently. Founded in 1829, Delvaux prides itself as being the world’s oldest standing leather goods company, and it certainly lives up to its reputation. Beginning with luxury trunks, the brand began to expand to travel bags, women’s purses and accessories in the early 1900’s. All aspects of the production process from design to completion, are given immense attention. Every hide to be used to create each individual bag is hand selected for prime quality. All bags have a distinct personal touch because they are all made entirely by hand, with tools which are made by hand by the craftsmen themselves. Exclusivity is a prominent trait of Delvaux handbags, since the label does not mass produce its pieces. Delvaux embodies the epitome of high quality and high fashion.

And here are my two favorite pieces…

One can never go wrong with a classic noir structured top handle purse with gold hardware. Again, it reminds me of my all-time favorite Kelly, but with a more affordable price tag. This one is priced at $3,650.

Delvaux Tempete MM


Of course, its version in shiny alligator is THE ultimate in luxury. If you have 15 grand to splurge, this one’s for you.



Among the men’s collection, the Supple Briefcase – 1829 stands out.


Thanks to the craft skills and resources that the House possesses, current models from the Delvaux collections can be personalised by embossing initials into the leather in three possibilities: gold embossing, silver embossing and blind embossing (without foil, so that the letters are discreetly indented). Embossing is a bespoke service and require an additional 5 to 10 working days for completion.

    Oh, I love Delvaux! I have a couple of vintage bags: a Tempête, a Brillant…

    Hermès will not tell you, but did you know that the Kelly bag was actually inspired by the Delvaux design?
