OUR STORY

WELCOME TO MADRE

We are an independent atelier for exclusive leather products based in Barcelona, Spain.
Since 2018 we handcraft minimalistic leather products with traditional production methods. Our products result from mixing the classic minimalistic german design language with the influence of the Spanish design and lifestyle.
We make all products with premium materials, mostly from local suppliers from Barcelona.
The products are shipped directly from our workshop to you.

BEST MATERIALS

We only use the best materials we can find to match our requirements. The leather selection we are using:

  • Highest graded
  • Vegetable-tanned leather
  • Full-grain leather
  • Made entirely in Spain
  • Vachetta | Calf | Novillo | Cow leather

 

Whenever possible, we use solid brass applications for our products.

SUSTAINABLE

We try to implement sustainable practices in all of our operations:

  • Local production
  • Sourcing from the best local suppliers
  • Materials with a minimal environmental impact
  • The design doesn't follow fashion
  • Products that age with pride
  • Minimizing packaging

 

Keeping as much value in-house as possible enables us to perform the best sustainability practices.

DIRECTLY FROM THE WORKBENCH

We are exclusively selling directly from our workshop to you. This results in:

  • Premium quality in materials and production
  • Fair production
  • At an affordable price

 

We are cutting out the many middlemen that all the big fashion chains are feeding. We don't outsource production in different countries to lower costs.

BUY LESS AND BETTER

Nobody needs a new fashion brand.
We need to find alternatives to restructure the way we do fashion.
