Great news- we are moving our production to sunny Spain!
For the past 5 years, we have been proud to work with artisans in NYC to produce our collections. However, our designs and production have been confined because of the limited supplies and skyrocketing price. I asked the team, how can we bring more value to our customers.
On the personal side, I am such a "look at the sky", "look at the moon", "listen to the waves", sing in the car type of person. I asked myself, how can I add more fun and build a business around the lifestyle I want.
When my feet first touched the white sand and calm water of the Mediterranean sea in Alicante, I knew this is the place. Our new factory is located in a small town outside of Alicante, Spain where craftsmanship is learned through a lifetime of experience. When I visited the factory, I was impressed by their organized process, keen attention to detail and passionate energy.
The owner, Juan, was a skilled artisan working for other factories for years before starting his own business 22 years ago. Today, he still works with the leather/bags himself; his two sons, Juanma and Esteban, run the factory with him. They are working with both international luxury brands and smaller independent designers.
Many thanks for your continuous love of this adventure. I can't wait to share the next chapter with you.
