The BELMAL Malletier master-craftsman creates some of the world's most exclusive artworks: uniquely designed, made-to-measure, entirely functional travel-trunks and special flightcases that can also be used as home decoration or office furniture, or in fashion shows, art exhibitions, and for special events, including in historical movies.

The word bespoke artistry adequately describes the superb personal creations designed and made by Jean-Pierre Bal, a true artisan who works in his 19th century atelier of Belgium. Each luggage item, manufactured by hand, one at a time, has unequalled character


The BELMAL masterpieces are either crafted on special order, or are the other unique ones that monsieur Bal calls the 'Solitaire' creations, which are disclosed by word of mouth to clients, experts and connoisseurs alike who invest in precious and rare objects.


The BELMAL way of trunk-making embeds the use of natural materials blended with ancient techniques, original art academy methods, and a high level of creativity, while the house's  manufacturing processes demonstrate the highest possible respect for the environment.  

The revenue generated at BELMAL Malletier contributes to the preservation of the house's museum-collection, and for the development of malletier conservatory courses.
