Take a look at this lovely video taken as part of a tour by Happy Van https://happyvan.pt/handicraft_tours/ This is Fernando. He’s our artisan based in the Algarve. He’s been working with leather for over 30 years although he doesn’t look old enough! It warms your heart to watch skilled craftsmanship. Even though we have mass produced products made and distributed globally, there’s still something very special and much longer lasting about a handmade product. The quality of the raw materials and the precision used to make it is second to none. Fernando’s range of products is exceptional. We have some of his work on our site for you to choose from. Once you purchase an item, you’ll have it for life.
