Awesome work! the leather is so soft; no need to break in. One of the most beautiful, unique pieces I have in my collection now. I'll definitely be ordering more. :) *can you make some pieces with black? :D

About

Laurel - leather&wool accessories from Uruguay

Laurel leaf is a plant used as a seasoning

A seasoning is an edible substance added to food to make it more flavorful to the eater. In this same way, accessories are to clothing as the condiments to food.
And that´s how we chose the name for our label.

Laurel was born in April 2010, when we (Lucrecia and Lucia) two young Uruguayans designers, quit our corporative jobs to start designing products that were significant to us.

Laurel designs, develops and manufactures female accessories that combine author design, locally sourced materials and local labor.

Uruguay is recognized on a global scale by its Cattle production.
This Industry derives in by-products such as leather and wool, which are the main textile raw material produced in the country.

Consequently, Laurel chooses to work mainly with leather, which is known for being a native, noble and excellent material. Every piece of leather used by Laurel is selected directly from where it is produced: the main tanneries in the country.
Laurel offers contemporary and versatile products that gather craft with new processes and technologies.

Laurel´s philosophy implies constant quality and warmth on what is done as well as working with the conviction that the design process must be done “inside out”: From heart and intuition rather than from pure trend. We beleive in slow fashion. Uruguay inspire us. Each Laurel line is inspired by part of our country´s culture.
