the lover of handmade leather goods will find a wide range of first-class
From plain leather belts and a rich choice
of bags up to custom made footwear - you will find almost every thing
your heart desires .
For more than 30 years
I've been dedicating myself to leather and its processing . In 1988
I opened my shop “ Cas Sabater” in Sta.
Ines on the Balearic island of Ibiza .
In order to fulfill my ambition of quality
, I prefer to use vegetable tanned cowhides . This traditional way of
tanning provides a beautiful grain and also allows the leather to age
and develop a lovely patina .
As leather is a natural product , no hide
equals an other . That is why I take great care in screening each skin
and use only those parts of the hide that show a well structured surface
and a perfect grain .
What follows is traditional craftsmanship
- using the same tools and techniques handed down over many generations
Handcraft seems to be an anachronism in
our fast moving world . Nevertheless , I observe that handmade products
are still appreciated and sought-after more than ever .
