HEREU’s approach to craft is guided by tradition and defined by a contemporary aesthetic. The network of manufacturers producing HEREU products have been making leather goods for generations. Situated across Spain, many of these businesses are still owned by the same families, having been passed down over the years along with vital skills. This sense of lineage leads to thoughtful manufacturing approaches, allowing, in turn, for the handmade production of pieces with true longevity.
These approaches include traditional leatherworking, as well as specific weaving and stitching techniques that require a significant period of training in order to master. Much of the work is completed by hand, meaning that HEREU’s partner artisans can only produce a small number of pieces per day. The preservation of these techniques is important to HEREU.
Heading the supple pieces that punctuate HEREU’s seasonal collections is Cabersa, our soft lambskin signature style.
