Denis Colomb was born in Aix en Provence, France. Traveling to the Far East and Nepal, he developed a deep appreciation for the artistry and traditional techniques of the local craftsmen. In 2003, he began to experiment with Mongolian cashmere, the finest in the world, and the first of his hand loomed shawls were created. Soon, Denis discovered new workshops, all the while refining texture, color and technique for a group of exquisite cashmere scarves, shawls and wraps. In 2004, the company was founded with his wife, Erica Lennard. The product line was inspired by Colomb's love of travel and desire to create a unique lifestyle collection of mens coats, mens button down shirts and tunics for modern, discerning global men. A key element introduced to the market was the concept of layering and the versatility of how the luxury clothing could be worn.
