Vraiment tres contente, le sac est magnifique ! J'ai pu customizer la couleur du cuir, la pierre, la longueur de la sangle. On vous propose aussi 2 types de fermetures. Le sac a 3 poches (cf photo), dans la grande du milieu mon galaxy note 4 rentre ! (avec sa housse !). La sangle est en 2 parties, la zone sur l'epaule est faite de sortes de mailles de cuir. Le poids est bien reparti et du coup c'est tres confortable a porter. Si vous hesitez avec le modele plus grand, je vous conseille celui-ci ! On peut y mettre l'essentiel (je mets telephone + petit porte monnaie + gros trousseau de clefs + tube a levres facilement).

Oh my!!! I opened the package yesterday and was completely taken away. It is such a beautiful piece of intricate art. It is also so utilitarian. Not only is it utterly breath taking, it is somehow also simple and useful. I waited two years to make this purchase. As I waited the few days for it it arrive after it was shipped, I worried that perhaps after years of building expectation, it couldn't possibly be good enough. I tell you, it is better than I ever imagined. It feels wonderful. I feel better with it. It is truly exceptional. The entire experience was genuinely delightful. Una maravilla. Gracias Gera!!
Creation with Integrity
We began our shop as blanket vendors, selling where we could. With a lot of practice and patience we have created a beautiful finished product to offer as well as a small successful business in Eugene, Oregon.
Traditional craftsmanship is what we do. First, because we value it. Second, it allows us to live outside of the box, live the simple life, live to create and to help others create. We are a family of three, living happily.
Gerardo began tying micro-macrame when he was 19 and decided to travel South America. When he met Nicole five years later, he taught her his art. Now, as established artisans, we are completing quality micro-macrame pieces with solid technique.
And life is constantly evolving. Four years ago now, a fine piece of leather and a handful of leather working tools came our way from a friend. Gerardo began playing with the leather techniques and made his first purse. He put macrame on it and the rest was history.
You can find us at various markets and festivals throughout the Pacific Northwest. We would love to see you. Check out our Facebook page for updates about our show dates and times.
Around the web
Gerardo was a creator his whole life: from construction to hand drums to audio speakers to immaculate purses and statement jewelry pieces. He hails from Chile.
