EL CUERO del TORO

‚ÄčTHE FUNCTIONAL CRAFT OF LEATHER


Since 1974, Alberto and Marcella Toro have worked in the medium of LEATHER: every piece of work is done totally by hand with the simplest of tools.  Each handbag and furniture ottoman is made of the finest quality cowhide and bullhide with accents of exotic ostrich, crocodile, alligator.  The plaiting (braiding) and hand-stitching are the signature characteristics of the leatherwork.

The work is handsome, functional, and of excellent craftsmanship; it is limited production as each piece requires hours/days of detail and each finished product is unique.


"Over the years we have chosen to continue our work simply, without studio production.  We feel that it is our responsibility to make our living and so we do it everyday, piece by piece, with the rhythm of each day."
