Very often, I have the tendency to address any subject from a professional point of view, rather than a “neutral” one. Not long ago, I was walking across an industrial area in Seville and could not help taking the photos below. It was one of the buildings that belonged to the Universal Exposition in Seville in 1992. When I saw it, some type of brushed leather came to my mind. Really liked the ombre effect… It was very inspirational.

Logo embossing is the most frequent way of branding a leather item. The majority of pieces that are made by leather goods manufacturers in this area are personalised by using “Bind Embossing”. The video below shows an example of this type of embossing. There are some other ways of embossing your logo on leather such as gold or silver foil embossing. Enjoy the video.

Genuine crocodile, alligator, stingray, snake, ostrich, lizard leather and other kinds of exotic skins are amongst the most luxurious leathers in the market. Only the most skilled leather goods craftsmen are able to work with these types of leathers especially due to their hardness.

All exotic leathers must be obtained in full compliance of CITES  regulations. That’s why very skin must have a tag specifying that they comply this. The tag means that the animal was fed in a farm that guarantees the survival of the species and wild life.

The photos below have been taken at local leather supplier Curtidos Zarco S.L.

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.
