The best functional designs

In 2010, we were inspired by the best of Mexico, traditions, history, art, colors, textures and what is representative of each place, hence we are proud of each of our collections. In these collections we have had the challenge of interpreting them in leather, recording the color of our range with pink and yellow inspired by Barragán and the gold of Art Deco. We were excited to find the green and blue tones of the agave that represents us worldwide. Incorporating patent leather into the Tzompantli collection to reinterpret black, polished obsidian was to give shine to the collection. The white skin with the blue skin leads us to enjoy the Talavera of Puebla. Another artisanal technique that, thanks to the creativity of the Piel Canela team, we can use is black clay with its characteristic designs. And going back to the history of our ancestors, we were inspired by the pyramids to shape another collection. Another of the collections we made was banknotes, since they represent the empire of our Mexico, in this collection we were inspired by the engraving and texture of Mexican banknotes. These collections are pieces of art made by Mexican artisans, which can be worn on a daily basis while being very functional. The products we have are designed and inspired by different things. We have notebooks, passport holders, wallets, card holders, boxes, bags, backpacks, briefcases, document holders, suitcase identifiers, among many other products, since we have an infinite number of products designed especially for you.

For Piel Canela, crafts are part of our slogan, because for us it translates into the art of giving and the luxury of receiving, artisanal treasures that last.
