The guadamecí is a leather working technique, developed in the city of Cordoba under the Arab influence dating back to the VIII century.
The term comes from the Andalusian/Arabic word ḡadamisí, which refers to the name given to the city of Gadamés, a town in Northern Africa, that was formerly specialized in the production of decorated leather articles. The main characteristic of this technique is that a silver or gold leaf layer is added to the embossing of the leather, which is then worked on.
