Elie Bleu’s humidors make non-cigar smokers want to pick up the habit just for the pure pleasure of owning one of these fabulous receptacles. Not only are they beautifully crafted; they are stunning to look at. Recalling the myth of old Havana, they feature vibrant, sun-drenched colors and motifs inspired by old Cuban themes and the revolutionary Che Guevara.
The Elie Bleu cabinetry workshops were established in 1976 in the heart of Paris’ Faubourg Saint-Antoine. At first Elie Bleu acted as a supplier to many of France’s luxury brands, but it quickly established a name
in its own right as the creator of beautifully handcrafted cigar boxes. Serendipitously, the future founder of the American magazine Cigar Aficionado stumbled on Elie Bleu’s creations and became their greatest fan, catalysing a brisk international business for the company.
Today, Elie Bleu’s product range has diversified far beyond humidors to include watch and jewelry cases, desk accessories and games. But at the heart of all these products is the craft of wood working, in which Elie Bleu is an absolute specialist.
