27th July 2011

Dear Logbook,

Today, we arrived in the factory and the faces of the leather workers were looking forward to the deserved break after a whole year of hard work in the leather workshop. We can see several cardboard cartons ready for shipment. They are separated in three different batches by destination. The manager has been absent from the workshop for the whole morning. He has been in the office. He must have been preparing the production plan for the end of August.  At 8 pm, the bell of the factory rang. All the leather workers wished happy holidays to each other while they were tidying their work tables. In a few minutes the workshop was in silence. As in a theatre, the house lights were dimmed. The next act will be performed in three weeks. HAPPY HOLIDAYS…

Today, we want to tell you about a collaboration that we started several months ago. As you may have noticed, Betangible.com aims at the manufacturing part of the leather goods industry in Andalusia (Spain), the relationship with leather goods manufacturers and the process of making an idea come true into a tangible item.

Not long ago, we started a collaboration with leather Goods magazine Ubrike.com. This online magazine focus on presenting leather goods trends, keeping you updated about the latest leather accessories that fashion brands release in each season, as well as presenting local leather goods brands that, although they are not still very well known in the international market, are determined to be recognised internationally by their “Made in Spain” design and manufacturing.

This is the second chapter of a series in which we want to let you know some figures about the leather manufacturing industry in Andalusia (Spain). These figures make clear the importance of “Made in Spain” leather goods in the world. As seen from the figures below “Made in Spain” leather goods have worked pretty well in markets traditionally associated to luxury such as France and Italy. Another conclusion that comes out from second chart is that the most successful leather items are bags and small leather goods with more than 60 % of the total.

If you have further questions about the lather goods manufacturing industry in Spain, do not hesitate to leave a comment.

Today, we want to introduce another traditional industry of Andalusia, Artisan Furniture Manufacturing Industry, which has traditionally been  linked to luxury.

The town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda , located right in the end of the river Guadalquivir and opposite Doñana National Park, is well known by its carpenters and cabinet-makers, who have been making the nicest furniture in Andalusia for more than 500 years.

Betangible had the opportunity to attend today’s presentation of Sibling’s AW11 Collection 6 at London Fashion Week. We got delighted at some leather details they used in the collection such as the leather shoulder pieces, the knitted scarf with a leather belt closure and the leather closure of some pockets.

From Betangible we encourage Sibling to keep using leather in their collections. Perhaps, this is the beginning of an long lasting relationship between Sibling and Leather. Will we see Sibling’s leather accessories shortly?

Using leather to cover objects has traditionally been linked to upholstery. This “wrapping technique” has evolved and it’s being used for many different objects and accessories. Just have a look at these items. Only the best craftsmen can adjust the leather to the shape of any object. Who dares…?

Nobody questions the importance of preserving the heritage of a city, town or community. However, not many people are sensitive to preserving Industrial Heritage, which deals with buildings, artefacts, techniques and products which are inherited from past generations, maintained in the present and bestowed for the benefit of future generations, often forming a significant attraction for tourism.

The Leather Museum of Ubrique is modestly trying to spread the history, tradition and treasures of the leather sector in Andalucía. If you have the opportunity to come to Andalucía, it’s worth visiting.
