OUR STORY

Our mission is to create timeless luxury pieces you will be able to cherish forever. Imagined beyond trends and ethically made with respect for the women and men who crafted them, we aim to make you look beautiful while empowering artisan communities.

 

Strongly influenced by her fascination for heritage craftsmanship and the bohemian lifestyle, creative mind behind the brand is designer Julie Coste. A trained textile artist and passionate about ancestral cultures, she draws her inspiration from the myriad of treasures she discovered while traveling across the globe.

After gaining experience working for large fashion labels, she became eager to bring a positive impact to the industry and dreamed of launching a brand that would be made with respect for people and planet. Her quest led her to Bali, where she fell in love with the island's vibrant artistic tradition and decided to establish Treasures in 2008.

 

Her collections merge western design aesthetics with influences from various cultures and traditions. Crafted by a talented team of artisans in very limited quantities and meticulous care (over 10 hours of work on each of our pieces), Treasures styles are rare, authentic and made to last a lifetime.

Always exceptional to the touch and made by hand in the highest grade materials, our collections are designed for the woman with a free spirited heart and a love for slow luxury.

AUTHENTIC CRAFTSMANSHIP

The synergy between authentic craftsmanship and a luxurious feel shapes the heart of Treasure's style. The range features embellished leather jackets and vests, suede fringe wraps with intricate detailing and effortless handbags. Blending high quality leathers and exceptional manufacturing skills, each style is entirely made by hand with great care.

 

The unique patterns we design on our shawls and jackets are hand-tooled by a select group of talented master artisans. With great focus and attention, they craft each perforation entirely by hand using traditional tools, finalized with handmade embroidery in the softest suede leather. This unique heritage is passed on from generation to generation and we cherish this unique co-creation process.

Carved in metal, or perforated in leather, the signature Treasures trademark in the shape of a drop, is the eye-catching embellishment in our collections. We designed it during our first stay on Bali and it’s shape was inspired by abstracting an ancient Hindu symbol that represents universal balance.

 

Since our founding, our primary goal is to ensure our customers will be able to cherish our ethically designed styles for a lifetime. As such, we only work with the highest quality leathers and offer tailor-made and custom-made services for all items available in our collections, to match your unique taste.

PHILOSOPHY

We began with the purpose of making ethical fashion, which is why we make sure that our entire supply-chain puts people first. We have a strong connection with our team of artisans and put fair practice at the heart of our business. As such, Treasures offers fair wages and health insurance while insuring child free labor and dignified working conditions. By guarding these values, we aim to contribute to a better world and improve the conditions of the gifted artisans who help to bring our Treasures to life.

 

Made on the beautiful island of Bali, we source all our materials locally and we pride ourselves on our ethical and socially conscious work environment. We believe that a product’s origins and sustainable production are just as important as its aesthetic. And true luxury comes alive when these elements are combined.

SUSTAINABILITY

More even than designing, we love our beautiful planet and believe in harnessing the force of design and business to do good. That's why we donate 5% of our proceeds to global reforestation projects through NGO One Tree Planted.
For each 100 euro spent with Treasures, we plant 5 trees on your behalf, that's almost the start of a small forest! With your help, we want to support One Tree Planted by giving back to the environment.
