LA MALLE EN COIN is the website of the company REVE DE BAGAGES.
Behind the company is a couple with a great passion for old trunks, know-how, luggage restoration and custom-making.
As we went along, we got specialized in luxury trunks, particularly in the following brands:
- Louis Vuitton
- Moynat Paris
And other brands like : Lavolaille, Hartmann, Oshkosh
We also developed a passion for trunk makers’ history.
Thus we have built a collection of luggage which is to date the largest one in Europe.
Since 2011, that collection can be seen at the MUSEE DU BAGAGE, whose management is totally attributed to the City of Haguenau.
Over the years, we have become keen on history.
We also collect posters, documents and old luggage parts.
Thus, we have published:

Does it smell like pepper? So, it’s a camphor!
Camphor is an exotic wood, which makes insects flee, by its pepper smell.
The camphor trunk (trunk made of camphor) was therefore very often used in the navy, the captain of the boat put his personal belongings there, and thus avoided to let them be eaten by the small beasts of the bottom of the boat...
Even today, this wood is used for its natural virtues, to scare away moths, for example, in fur hats (Chapka...)
Let yourself be tempted:-)
The time for the return and the storage of the holiday items has arrived, for most of us.
What's more practical than a trunk, to tidy up until the next beach time ...

Keys... that’s the first thing people lose with trunks! It’s rare to find a trunk with its key.
