About me

Some words about

I’m the son of a carpenter and I worked with my father during my youth. Perhaps that is why I have always felt a special attraction to crafts. Working with leather began five years ago. After spending years and years working with my computer, my head and my hands desperately asked me to detox. At that time I was looking for a leather wallet, but I could not find any that I fully liked. I found the solution: “I will do it myself.” What came next were months of searching, learning, trial and error … And then all the people I know began to ask me for wallets, bags … With them I practiced and improved my technique. Especially with Marta, my partner, who became my private tester.

Thanks to the support and encouragement of my friends I began making handcrafted leather goods. Currently I combine my work as a designer at www.redpixel.es with Cocuan.

My philosophy is to create simple and functional products. First I consider the requirement and then I try to create the article that will offer the answer to this. Always using the minimun elements required.

Thanks for your time reading this!!

Work-shop

Where I work

This is my little work-shop located in Mataró (Barcelona) where I do all the products you can see in this web.

Feel free to visit Cocuan if you came to Barcelona anytime.

Leather

What kind of leather I use and where I buy it

All Cocuan goods are made of full grain natural vegetable tanned leather. It’s tanned in Igualada (Barcelona – Spain) is a place with an old tradition with tanneries. Natural variations in the leather surface are the evidence of real hide. Stiching is made with individual holes punched by hand and sewed in the traditional way with waxed linen thread.
