In one of our first posts we featured images of some pieces made using the “leather carving” technique. This technique has been studied, used and improved by a very well known craftsman and artist from Ubrique called Luis Domínguez Rojas.


Rojas (this is how he signs his pieces) has been making leather carved pieces for more than 60 years. We recently interviewed him at his small workshop and museum and he captivated us when he stated, “I am still learning about this technique”.


He is currently collaborating with a local leather supplier Curtidos Cabezas  trying to transmit his know-how to local leather workers through training courses. He aims at transmitting his passion for this art to the next generation of leather artisans. Below you can find a short video filmed during our interview. Hope you enjoy it.

Today, we would like to show you an example of how luxury brands are fostering the idea of customisation and bespoke manufacturing . French luxury brand, Goyard , has produced a short video in which they emphasise the handcrafted aspect of their products at the same time that they focus on the idea of tailor-made products. We hope you enjoy the video.

Making Custom-made products has become the new way that Luxury Brands are using to offer their clients a more exclusive and personalised service. This is a way of going back to their origins and raison d’etre.

We really enjoy being part of these sorts of projects in which we help designers and brands create unique leather goods. The images below are parts of this kind of projects.

The video below shows the artisanal work behind the making process of a Bottega Veneta  hard shell clutch bag. Attention to detail and the most skilful hands are needed to make such a masterpiece. We hope you enjoy the video.

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 .

American fashion designer, Rick Owens  launched a new series of leather accessories featuring a metallic gold finish that is present throughout his AW’12 collection. We really like the contrast between the metallic leather and the matt edge dye.  Hope you enjoy them.
