The oldest luxury goods house in the world is today so luxurious but at the same time so under the radar that it is the epitome of quiet luxury. Founded in 1829 in Brussels, Delvaux is a truly Belgian brand, in fact, it is even older than Belgium, since the Kingdom of Belgium was only established one year later, in 1830. If Delvaux is renowned and celebrated for the quality of its creations, it is in large part thanks to the meticulous, skilled craftsmanship that is at the heart of the company’s legacy and strategy. The leather goods are handmade on the brands ateliers and have long been royalty favorites. In 1883 Delvaux was granted the title of ‘Purveyor to the court’, meaning they were the official supplier of leather goods to the Belgium royal family.
