Our workshop is located on one of the last European sites of luxury leather goods production, combining tradition and know-how in leather work, coming from the secular art of Andalusian saddlery.
Ubrique is located in the province of Cádiz, in the heart of the Sierra of Grazalema. Ubrique, originally a typical white village, became since the 18th century the cradle of high-end leather goods where the quality of the craftsmanship and the final product still prevails over the quantity of production.
The relationship between the creator-workshop is very intimate, it allows to ensure the transcription of the designer’s vision from the sketches to the final product.
It is an exclusively handcrafted production, with the challenge of bringing tradition to modernity. The know-how, as well as the tools are passed down from father to son. The same craftsman makes a model from the leather cutting to the bags assembling: a BONASTRE design needs about twenty hours to be produced.
Once assembled, it is with meticulous attention that every bag and every detail is checked before the final strength testing.
