D'AUCHEL is the family name of founder Olivier Dauchez, the descendant of a French noble family that originated in 13th Century (XIII) France. Growing up in his mother’s French castle, the 100-year-old Chateaux de Villechaize in Loire Valley, Olivier played amongst majestic French gilt armours, hand-woven artistic tapestries, and elaborately carved period pieces of wood furniture. As such, he learned to appreciate the fine work and traditional know-how of the master artisan, who spends decades perfecting his craft. This appreciation, passed down for generations and honed by a grandfather who was a master craftsman of silk scarves, led Olivier to develop an exquisite eye for the details of luxury.
Olivier Dauchez has 20 years of experience in the leather bag business, and oversaw the manufacturing of fine leather goods for the world’s most recognizable luxury brands. With years of expertise in sourcing and selecting high quality leather and a fine eye for extraordinary craftsmanship, Olivier hopes to create utterly unique bags—entirely French-made by hand in Hong Kong—that the discerning woman of taste will appreciate.
