Graduated from Studio Bercot in 1999, Emmanuelle Keller worked as a stylist and head of collections for various brands. Her experiences have given her expertise and understanding of the entire creation process for leather goods, from design to production. Being aware that traditional French workshops are slowly disappearing, Emmanuelle’s wish, by founding Maison Hikaku, is to create a place of excellence matching her expectations for high end goods. She partnered with a talented leather goods manufacturer, Louise Dallérac, and acquired all the necessary tools to produce leather handbags as they were manufactured in a bygone era.
Why the choice of independence? Emmanuelle thinks being independant goes hand in hand with a high quality offer. She is her first client, confident in her taste as well as her ability to read the signs of the times.
