Our history.

INSPIRED BY DIFFERENCE.

Our story began in 1982 when Jean-Daniel Christin created the brand Nature Bijoux. Ornithologist and naturalist, with a passion for nature and a new-born interest for natural materials, he launched his first jewelry collection with original, unique and novel pieces. A few years later his 3 children Manuelle, Amaury and Simon joined him to develop the brands Franck Herval and Ori Tao. Together they created the group Les Chamanes.

Established in the south of France, we chose to set up our manufacturing workshops in the Philippines to be closer to nature. Our craftsmen and designers work in a family atmosphere where there is a strong team spirit and where everything is done to create a pleasant working environment favorable to creation.
We control everything in house, from the creation of a jewel to its distribution and of course all the steps of its design in order to offer handcrafted and creative high-quality pieces.

We’ve been working with costume jewelry’s retailers for over 40 years. Being able to fit to different trends we recently opened up to the end customers’ market. A proximity with the customer which contributes to the creativity, dynamism and reputation of our group.

Our desire with Les Chamanes is to mainly present a diversified offer and to integrate novelty, initiative, freshness and originality in our creations while taking care of the environment.

Thanks to all these values our group became one of the main actors in the fashion jewelry world.

WE ARE ONE TEAM.

1. CREATION

Our designers surround themselves with the best stylists, craftsmen, graphic designers and photographers and collaborate with famous design offices in Paris. And thanks to their constantly boiling minds they give birth to unique jewelries which perfectly match the trends.

The richness of the materials we use and the techniques of handwork creations combined with modern technologies such as 3D make the strength of our know-how and contribute to create this identity so specific to us.

2. MANUFACTURING

We have our own manufacturing workshops on the island of Cebu, Philippines, where experienced craftsmen, with a unique expertise in costume jewelry, work.

With our very technical (casting, plating) and very artistic skills (enameling, marquetry, shaping) we are able to produce a wide range of items while guaranteeing excellent quality and a meticulous finishing.
Thanks to these integrated in-house processes everything is under control. We can therefore be more reactive and flexible and better answer to the specific needs of our customers. Among them, several famous fashion key players have trusted us and benefit from our know-how.

To stick to this environmental approach, we commit ourselves to limiting our impact on nature as much as possible. We submit to strict recycling and waste treatment rules. And we already removed from our creations such materials as coral or snakeskin and some wood species. The goal being to always stick as closely as possible to our values and to respect biodiversity.

3. DISTRIBUTION

Present in more than 1500 partner boutiques in France and abroad with a dedicated sales team and a very efficient customer service, we have been able to expand our distribution network and gain notoriety all over the years.

This experience and this know-how enabled us to be represented in some major department stores such as Galeries Lafayette, BHV or Corte Inglès. In addition to the B to B network, we wanted to get closer to our customers. In order to develop our brand awareness and image and to be adapted to market developments, we created a digital marketing department (website, social networks) and an operational one. This approach allows us to always stay close to the end consumers and to better stick to their expectations.

To increase our visibility, we bought Olivolga in 2019, a multi-brand site dedicated to jewelry, accessories and perfumes.
