Offering a high-quality, durable product and minimising the environmental impact of our work is extremely important to us. We therefore take great care when deciding on the materials and finishes we use, and the processes we follow.
For the structure of our furniture, legs and table tops we use premium solid wood.

Leathers and hides
All the hides we use come from food industry surpluses, which means that no animal has been slaughtered exclusively for the use of its skin.
In order for leather to be used as a raw material, it undergoes a 100% vegetable tanning process, using vegetable extracts from plants such as Quebracho and Mimosa. This is a painstaking process that is done by hand. It is followed by a fatliquoring treatment using several applications of natural fats and olive oils.
The result is a supple leather with a traditional texture and smell. As there is no chrome or any kind of plastic substance to hide the imperfections of the leather, natural marks such as wrinkles and nerves may be visible on the leather. These are not signs of deterioration, but particular qualities of the leather that make each piece unique.
We select each leather individually from our supplier's warehouses. Depending on its intended use, we select different parts and types (cowhide, grain leather, sheepskin, etc.), choosing the thicknesses that best suit the qualities required for each design.
Black grain leather
Cherry-coloured grain leather
Hazel-coloured grain leather
For upholstery and for some bags we use fabrics made of high quality natural fibres such as cotton and linen. All our fabrics are made of at least 90% natural fibres. In addition, we work with suppliers who are committed to protecting the environment and can prove that they do not use undesirable substances.
In addition to wood, leather and textiles, we use other materials such as threads, nickel-free fittings, water-based paints and varnishes, adhesives, beeswax, zips, foam rubber, paper, cardboard, etc. Our aim is to ensure that all these materials are also environmentally friendly.
Colourless acrylic ultra-matt varnish – highly resistant with a very natural finish
This finish protects the wood from daily wear and tear, protecting it from scratches and making it waterproof. The high flexibility of the varnish prevents the surfaces from cracking while maintaining the natural appearance of the wood and highlighting its grain, without modifying the colour, adding gloss or plasticising the surface.
Natural hardwax oil
We use this finish for worktops, chopping boards, etc. as it is DIN EN 71-3 certified, so it is safe for food preparation and suitable for use on toys. It is free of biocides and oximes.
We use vegetable-based oils that will give the furniture a very natural look, as the pores of the wood remain completely open. However, for this reason, it does not provide the same protection as varnish. This type of finish is recommended for chairs, furniture legs, shelves and any structures that are not regularly exposed to liquid spills.
These oils do not release gases of any kind after application. Oil-treated wood is completely biodegradable or can be incinerated.
This finish provides a satin effect. The glossiness can be determined by the degree of polishing. It is a completely natural finish.
Leathers softened with beeswax
For the finishing of vegetable-tanned leathers, we do not use any product to close the pores. This allows the leather to breathe and to be greased regularly, thereby keeping the leather alive and making it more flexible and durable. As the pores remain open, the leather will darken, evolve and become more unique over time, acquiring its own patina.
