Hello, welcome to MADRE!


We are an independent atelier for exclusive leather products based in Barcelona.

Since 2018 we handcraft minimalistic leather products with traditional production methods.

All our products are made with premium materials, which we source mainly from the region of Barcelona.

  • Products that age with pride

Printed by Sun

The signature of our products is the sun pattern. We developed a world unique process to burn patterns on leather. Our leather products are tanned with patterns under the sun on our terrace in Barcelona. The sun is tanning only the areas, that we don’t cover. The covered areas will keep the nude colour. Each item is only produced in a limited edition with the specified print. As the leather is exposed to the sun, the leather will darken and receive its unique patina. If you don’t use the product, its best stored in a dark place.
