I think you all know that we like challenges and this project has been a real one.This “adventure” started a few months ago. It became a “tangible” piece not long ago and it is now in the market.

Nothing can be compared to the excitement when we saw our customer’s face once the production sample was finished. It was an incredible feeling to see that we managed to make what they had in their minds. As they said… “A dream come true”…

The making of this stunning design was beautifully filmed at our leather goods sampling studio in Ubrique (Spain). We really enjoyed the experience not only for the fun but also for the fact that our customer was able to see and appreciate the passion our team put on every step of the making process of their leather bag.

Thanks to the owners of the design and brand (The SLCTD) , it is a pleasure to be able to share the video below with our followers. Hope you like it. We look forward to your comments….

Believe it or not, there are still small leather goods workshops that make one-off leather products. Today, we would like to show you a local manufacturer that specialises in the manufacturing of bespoke storage chests and trunks, Breton. We were invited to see Breton’s workshop and got impressed about their craftsmanship and meticulous care of the details in each piece. See some photos below.

The Spanish leather goods industry is in very good shape. According to the latest official data (download it here in Spanish)  , Spanish leather goods manufacturers have consolidated their international expansion in spite of the world’s generalised recession. The exports of manufacturing services have increased 17% in 2011 with a turnover of more than 511 millions Euros (Exports).

Made in Spain’ leather goods are very much appreciated not only by fashion brands and independent designers but also by the final customer, who is more and more informed and interested in what is behind the product they are buying.

Andalusia is the region that still holds the biggest cluster of companies dedicated to the manufacturing of leather accessories, most of which are based in the town of Ubrique  and the surrounding towns such as Prado del Rey .

Bags made out of cork? Yes, and the result has been very satisfactory. Cork has unequalled features that make this natural product suitable for fashion accessories. There are many characteristics that are unique to cork, such as lightweight, waterproof, rot resistant, recoverable and durable. We made some bags out of cork and want to share them with you. We hope you enjoy them.

A very good friend of ours told us about this very first collection of two Italian artists who have joined their creative spirits under the name C.A.2 Creative . The collection features huge stoles, gloves, foulards and small accessories and is inspired by ancient Chinese paper-cut artworks. Automatic Cutting Systems (Blade, laser or water-jet cutting) may have been used for the engravings.
