made in mexico

This rustic Mexican leatherwork is distinct to the Chiapas region of Mexico. 

Each piece is individually handmade by an artisan living in the southern highlands. The locally cured leather produces a firm yet rustic satchel.

Artisans - Isidro, Juan and Enrique

Native from the Mexican state of Chiapas, the trio of artisans Isidro, Juan and Enrique learnt the art of leather making from their families, and are proud to continue this tradition.

Each artisan has their own unique expertise in leather cutting, assembly and hand-tooled design.

The trio collaborates and creates their masterpieces by using discarded cow and goat leather. This is a relatively sustainable and eco-friendly way to produce these rustic leatherworks. Despite tourism having slowed in their region, they hope to continue sharing their love for leather making.
