Minimalist Wallet - 1887 Spanish tannery in Natural colour
Regular priceSale price
From time to time we receive some leather from a very special tannery, probably one of the oldest tanneries in the world and, without a doubt, one of the smallest. Founded by his great-great-grandfather in 1887 Genaro runs alone his tannery, using the same methods and tools and working on the very same premises the previous generations have used. As you can imagine leather is of the highest quality, but you won't find his leather used in any famous luxury brand nor anybody will talk about his masterwork in forums, the leather he produces is very limited and is already sold months before being manufactured. Also, he lives and works alone in a remote small town in the north of Spain, you won't see many tourists or media coverage there.
The pictures included were made by us in one of our visits (sorry in advance for the quality), but they sure help to picture how old traditions are kept and maintained and somehow feel the atmosphere. Hope his legacy can be kept for many years and generations to come.
This batch will combine, more than ever, modern 21st-century design with old traditions and materials.
The leather is produced from local cows that have been pasturing in the fields around, in natural colour and, of course, veg tanned. It has no grain correction and has marks and scars that, together with the amazing patina this leather will develop over time, makes this leather a choice with a strong personality and individuality.
Thread color choices are red, blue, brown, black, green and orange.
