Leather craft has been immersed in Spain’s tradition for centuries. Over time, Granada developed its own unique style and technique. Every leather item created in our studio is the result of more than twenty years of research and practice in the techniques used in Granada’s traditional leather tooling and polychroming.
Our study of ancient designs as well as our use of traditional tools places each item well within the leather tradition of Andalucía, Spain; a rich but dying craft.
The skin used on our pieces is naturally cured cowhide, which is free of any artificial
manipulation other than that necessitated by the curing process. This permits the hide to be worked without limitation.
The resulting effects and finishes are unique to each article.
