    Artisans

    the artisans
    third generation

    There are 11 artisans working in our atelier in Valencia.
    They are the children and grandchildren of artisans.
    The custodians of a certain type of undigitalised wisdom.
    One that can only be learned by seeing and doing.

    hands

    Designers discover. Artisans objectify.
    They give shape to whatever others have inside.
    Their hands have the gift to transform
    ideas into something tangible.

    leather

    At the start it’s a fight.
    Then it turns into an exercise of
    pulling the rope without breaking it.
    Until it’s inmortalised.

    patience

    Artisans sew with the needle of patience, on an anonymous canvas. Their craft is passion and a war of many hours.

    the family

    Alejandro

    He manages the atelier together
    with his sister Cristina.
    3 generations of artisans.

    Cristina

    She manages the atelier together
    with her brother Alejandro.
    A veteran designer.

    Cristina

    Artist and artisan.
    She works in the atelier
    and has her own painting studio.

    Miguel

    He distributes the workload
    amongst the artisans.
    Miguel cuts, repairs
    and makes technical
    sheets.

    Ángel

    Modelist and pattern maker.
    He knows each of
    the steps of the process
    and is a perfectionist at heart.

    Isabel

    Isabel comes from a family
    devoted to the art of small leather
    goods since the 50’s.
    She has been working in the
    field since the age of 16.

    and assembly. One of the
    latest to join the family.
    Paqui and Jose are a team.

    Paqui

    She became an artisan at
    the age of 16.
    Paqui refuses to accept any
    standard short of perfection.

    Fermina

    Hardworking.
    Her and her four sisters devote
    themselves to the profession
    with much passion and pride.

    Antonia

    An expert on the sewing machine.
    She came into the atelier timidly.
    Now she walks firmly.

    Carmen

    Carmen has been involved in all
    processes at the atelier.
    Her capacity to learn and communicate
    with others is outstanding.
