However, before these names made their niche in the industry and took Belgian fashion scene one step forward to global fame, there is one name that surpasses them all. The name is none other than Delvaux.
Founded by Charles Delvaux in 1829, the world's oldest fine leather luxury house has created more than 3000 handbags filled with fantasy and wit.
These fabulous creations are all documented within its Le Livre D'or or the Golden Book – a registry of the company's product in a magnificent set of bounded volumes. Even after 185 years of its existence, every new creation continues to be thoroughly described, sketched and catalogued.
