We recently got to know about the video below and decided to share it with our followers. The video is about the Museé International d’Horlogerie  in Switzerland  (International Museum of watchmaking). It’s not only that we are passionate about watches and watchmaking but also because such an ambitious project with Montblanc   will serve to keep records of how watches were made in the past and protect the savoir-faire of Swiss watchmakers.

We already wrote an article about the Leather Goods Museum  in Ubrique and published some pictures. You will soon learn more about this museum.

English brand Mulberry was established in Somerset (England) in 1971. The brand was a success from the very first collection and became the first lifestyle British brand. Although most of Mulberry’s leather products are made in their rural Somerset factory, known as The Rookery, many pieces are made in Spain by Andalusian leather goods manufacturers.   The key factors for this success have been the passion for the artisanal work and the selection of the best raw materials, among others.
