Our story

Our Story

Growing up in Montevideo, Uruguay, we watched in amazement at our mother’s abilities
with her sewing machine. She would make all kinds of clothes,
stitch together beautiful designs, and hand-paint dresses. Luckily for
us, there were always craft supplies available around the house! As playful teenagers, we started making our own
sandals with purchased soles and handmade tops using all sorts
of materials... and they actually turned out quite cute!

Sofia manufactured her first leather bags while she majored in industrial design in college. What started just as a hobby grew rapidly as more and more friends spread the word. Before she knew it, Sofia
had a small but loyal clientele. By the time she graduated from college, Sofia, she bought a leather
sewing machine, enrolled on a leatherwork course, and went back full steam to her passion.. In those early days, she would go to leatherwork classes during the day
and practice sewing leather pieces over and over again at night. As
the business started to grow again, Sofia took the final step to create a
formal business and named the company "muss."

Higher demand meant Sofia's work-load had become overwhelming and so
she was elated when her sister Silvina joined the company at the
beginning of 2017. Silvina’s inspiration was to help Sofia turn muss into an
internally known business that turnshigh quality Uruguayan leather into a
passion for great leather bags. With her background in food
engineering and marketing, Silvina brings extensive commercial and
management experience to the team.

From the beginning our brand's focus on creating and experimenting
with new designs has not changed. We strive to make authentic leather handbags and purses that are
elegant, fun, chic, and, of course, always functional. Give us a try, we won't
disappoint you!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

If you have a special request, I would be most happy to hear your thoughts.

Wholesale availability

I do sell wholesale. Please contact me if you have any questions. I will be happy to send you a linesheet and all the info you need.

Will I have to pay any extra taxes or import fees?

Purchases made from the U.S don't usually require any extra tax or import fee, but some other countries do.

Depending on the country you live, there might be an applicable duty, tax (e.g. VAT), or import fees charged in your country once the item arrives. Please be aware that I, as the seller, cannot pay for such charges.

These fees are assessed and imposed by your local customs office and will vary form country to country. Any customs, duties, or tariffs imposed on import are the responsibility of the buyer. I am unable to effect or reimburse these costs in any way. By purchasing from MUSSLEATHERS, you agree that you, as the buyer, are responsible for these local fees.

Gift wrapping and packaging

By default, the items are shipped to the address that appears in your Etsy account; should you want it to go to a different address, please contact me and I'll be happy to follow your request.

The piece you will receive will be carefully packaged, making it perfect for a gift and later storage for protection.

Natural imperfections

As all handmade products using natural materials, there might be small "imperfections". Please allow these small details as they are part of the beauty of handmade work and the uniqueness of leather products.

Care instructions

For most of our products:

Clean off dust using a dry cloth and apply clear silicone (you can use furniture protective spray). Apply on a dry cloth and softly apply it on your bag. Never apply the silicon directly onto the leather.

Do not machine wash.
Do not soak.

Store in dry places.

Return and Exchanges

If you are dissatisfied with your purchase you can return it and receive the refund to your credit card through Paypal.

Items can be returned within 7 days of their receipt. The item must be returned in the same condition it was shipped (new and unused). Please contact me before making a return shipping.

The refund will be applied once the item arrives.

The buyer is responsible for the costs of the return shipping to Uruguay. The buyer can choose sending by any currier or we can facilitate one. In both cases the buyer is responsible for the cost of the return, fees and taxes.

Since my items are handmade from genuine leather, please allow small imperfections as they are part of the beauty of working with natural materials.
