In the 3rd chapter of Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days", Phileas Fogg shocks his servant Passepartout with the announcement that they will be leaving immediately to travel around the world in eighty days.
Launching Ateliers Phileas feels a bit like that, or in a way like waking from an enjoyable dream that suddenly turns out to be reality, but running at breakneck speed.
3 years of formal and informal discussions between a heteroclite group of designers and craftsmen has led to the creation of this new brand. We love traditional craftsmanship, the finest materials and vintage luggage and accessories from the golden age of travel in the early 20th century.
Ateliers Phileas is a journey that will take a lot longer than 80 days, we hope you will travel with us!
