In 2012, Héctor Jareño founded Reliquiae. The name is the Latin word for an object whose sentimental value has survived over time, epitomising Héctor’s mission, inspired by his father’s legacy and his background as an interior designer. Reliquiae’s bags are made in Spain and are made to last, transcending time, where impeccable quality is the ultimate goal and materials are carefully and mindfully searched. Héctor delves references in the realm of architecture and haute couture, the design is contemporary, clean and graphic, based on proportion and harmony.


The three main styles are handbags Archy, Irma and Canvas, and are updated every season, infused with new ideas, colours and details. All handbags and accessories can be personalised and customised, creating an intimate conversation with the customer, based on mutual trust and respect. In just a few years, Reliquiae has become an iconic Spanish brand, open to collaborations and favoured by connoisseurs. Her Majesty Queen Letizia has carried the Archy clutch in more than one occasion.
