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….

We got impressed when we received the video below. We love everything in it; Prada’s  Saffiano leather, the traditional edge dyeing method, the hand making of the handles… The video really depicts how high-end leather goods manufacturing is performed. 95% of the processes are hand made, in which the hands of the craftsman and his/her skills are the only guarantors of a luxuriously made leather good. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Industry is getting record figures on exports and its Industrial Production Index (IPI) has increased by 20%. Leather goods and shoes were amongst the top three most produced products with more than 24 million units.

Despite the recession, the Spanish leather goods manufacturing industry enjoys good health due to the high quality standards and customer service that most leather goods manufacturers treasure.

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 .

Most people may agree that Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta is mostly recognised by their woven bags. You may also imagine that only the most skilled Artisans are able to make it with the quality standards that luxury brands offer. The video below shows part of the process. I hope you enjoy it.

Most of the input that we receive from brands dedicated to the design and manufacturing of leather goods refers to the value of craftsmanship, tradition and the fact that their products have been handmade one by one using the “most genuine” leather. After not much thought or reflection one may think that there may be some minor changes and/or “imperfections” as part of the “one-by-one” making process. However, these minor “imperfections” are not always accepted and understood by buyers/clients… So, … where is the value of handmade leather goods? Is it in the ability of the leather workers to make handmade copies? Should clients accept these minor imperfections?
