History about Abaco brand
About the Abaco brand
Created in the late 80s by the couple of Raquel and Guy Achache, the Abaco brand, whose name comes from a souvenir from the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, offers a world where the trends make their presence known subtly and where the quality is unfailingly exquisite.
In this House, Guy takes care of the management side while Raquel is left free to set the creative direction. This binomial familial pairing has been incredibly effective as success came right from the beginning!
For 25 years, Raquel Achache, the creator and co-founder of Abaco, gives us season after season gorgeous accessories inspired by film and travel.
This former professional makeup artist describes herself as ultra-feminine and we can definitely detect it in her creations. She has cultivated during the span of her career a great knowledge of textures and colors. Thus, she composes each exclusive subtle nuanced detail of the creations herself, adding vibrancy with the help of natural pigments, a painter’s palette and a gouache style.
In addition, she selects all the leathers and lambskin herself while insisting on a 100% French fabrication.
