Thank you very much for your understanding.
If you want to contact me you can send me a message to laforjadeprometeo [!at] gmail.com

In this globalized world where there is more and more impersonalization, we want you to know that you talk to the artisan and designer of your pieces.

The "La Forja de Prometeo" project is started by David Quesada Heredia with another partner and friend ,Eduardo Velayos, in 2012
The idea was to work making armors and props in a wide range of styles or historical periods.
We wanted to be a reference in terms of quality of the materials we work with, as well as the quality of the work by hand, taking advantage of the long experience that both friends had in their trajectories separately.

The project has been continued by David Quesada dedicated only to leather work since 2017...
A few months later, that same year (2017), Isabel Guirao Navarro joins to work in "La Forja".
"Isa" is a plastic artist specialized in sculpture and painting, but she is also dedicated to do CEO functions, Communication, Customer Service,
Production and Design in Leather Crafts, Photography, Photo Editing, Costume Design, etc...

Isa, in addition to being an expert in patinas and a talented painter, from her previous experience brings
multiple facets to leather work and expands and/or improves many of the aspects of the work in the workshop.
Both share their passion for art and creation and we follow the philosophy initiated a few years ago by David and Eduardo.

Isabel Guirao's trajectory ends at Prometeo's Forge at the end of 2021.
Isabel Guirao, as a multidisciplinary artist, is currently working on several exciting projects.

David Quesada continues his journey in the Forge of Prometheus.

As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction that has data protection and government oversight laws different from those in your jurisdiction.

Please, contact me if you would like a different size of any of our products. If you are not sure about your size, contact me and I will gladly help you.

Care instructions

For a better maintenance of your leather piece we recommend:

1-Apply Horse Fat or moisturizer and rub until the
piece absorbs it partially.
(There are also other products on the market that can help you).

Perform this operation every 2 or 3 months or sooner depending on its use.

2-If the piece gets wet in its entirety, let it dry in a closed and dry place
(not the sun)

In case it gets wet partially, moisten completely to avoid marks
produced by water and let it dry in a closed and dry place.

After this process apply the hydration of point 1.

** Very important is not to apply heat such as a dryer or leave in the sun. This causes the hardening of the leather.
