Delvaux is a Belgian manufacturer of fine leather luxury goods founded in 1829 by Charles Delvaux. The company is the oldest fine leather luxury goods house in the world.
In 1829, a year before Belgium declared its independence; Charles Delvaux opened a travel goods workshop and store in Brussels, Belgium. In 1908, Delvaux filed its first patents for handbags.
In 1933 an agricultural engineer with no experience in leather goods, Franz Schwennicke, took over the company from Edmond Delvaux, the last of the Delvaux family line. While keeping the manufacturing of travel goods, he progressively introduced a new concept for the time, the creation of seasonal collections, as is still done to this day.
Delvaux creates two collections per year, Spring-Summer and Autumn-Winter. Each collection sees the introduction of new materials and new colors. Delvaux also creates small leather goods, custom jewelry, and scarves.
Delvaux operates about 10 stores in Belgium with its flagship boutique being “Le 27” at 27, Boulevard de Waterloo in Brussels, Belgium. Delvaux operates 42 stores in the world, including doors in Belgium, England, Italy, the United States, China, and Japan. It is otherwise distributed through specialty and department stores in Australia, Austria, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
