The Elva Cigar Humidor, a collaboration between Réhahn and Elie Bleu

Renowned for crafting wooden masterpieces, their handcrafted boxes have adorned the most exquisite items, from watches to cigars. These boxes, known for their precision and elegance, have even been chosen to house gifts for Heads of State and special guests across the globe.

Collaboration with Elie Bleu. Limited Edition of Elva Cigar Humidor by Réhahn

The extremely collectible series officially launched at La Casa del Habano in Ho Chi Minh City during an exclusive event on the 11th of November, 2023. At the heart of this collection is the humidor, featuring the iconic portrait of Elva from Réhahn’s cigar smokers series. Captured in Havana, Cuba, in 2013, the photograph portrays a strong-minded woman in her seventies, adorned with a wreath of red flowers and a Cohiba Esplendido in her mouth. This image has earned its place as one of the most recognizable depictions of Cuba’s cigar culture over the past decade.
Crafted with precision, the humidor boasts a Padouk Wood exterior and Spanish Cedar interior in golden tobacco tones. It was created in an extremely micro-edition of only 66 pieces, many of which have already sold. Complementing the humidor, the series includes an ashtray made from Kaolin clay in the French city of Limoges, limited to 105 pieces, and an Elva cutter and lighter, each limited to 155 pieces.

The Original “Elva” photograph has been one of the artist’s bestselling portraits since it was released exactly a decade ago in a limited series of 15 copies per size (large and collector’s editions). Currently, there is only one remaining copy, which hangs in Rehahn’s gallery in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

This extremely exclusive collection invites connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike to immerse themselves in the intersection of art, craftsmanship, and cultural legacy.
