The leather goods created in 1829 in Brussels by Charles Delvaux has proven itself and has been exported all over the world over the years. Today, it enjoys worldwide recognition. Its success is not due to chance…
Its founder, Charles Delvaux, was indeed already a visionary at the time. Belgium held a rail network peak in the late 19 th century. The desire of women to travel and the industrial context, pushed him to file in 1908 several patents for handbags.
In the 1930s, Franz Schwennicke and then his wife, Solange, took over the management of the Maison. They were able to make it an exclusive brand by introducing seasonal collections and by creating in 1958 an emblematic bag “Le Brillant” still worn by stars in 2020. Recently the House has entered into a partnership with the Magritte Foundation. On this occasion, she dedicates a complete line of small leather goods and luggage to the dreamlike world of the Belgian painter, René Magritte.
Today, the brand has more than 40 stores worldwide. It stands out for its surreal attitude, the quality of its products and its elegance. A museum dedicated to the history of the brand, its creations and of Belgium also opened its doors in 2019.
