When did you decide to take up this craft?
It happened one day in 2015, when we went to the Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris. I was blown away by the vintage trunks I saw. I knew in that moment that I wanted to make trunks like these and hand them to their new owners.
What do you love most about making trunks?
This is a forgotten, almost lost craft, due to the evolution of the industry and changes in public demand. But, for me, digging into the origins of the craft and trying to master forgotten techniques is a challenge I love. And my challenge is also to bring a new, modern vision to the craft.

Does your craft feel linked to Belgium in any way?
I don’t want to be linked to a specific place. Each trunk is handmade from the ground up, one by one, stitch after stitch. By respecting the ethical values of our craft and the sustainability of our materials we manage to offer remarkable trunks, which are 'handmade on Earth'.
When is an object well made?
Time is our most precious luxury, which we need to cherish and try to convey to our customers. You can live fast, but we will always need to craft slowly, taking time at every step in the process. But only looking back after many years can you judge if something is well made or not.
