Hereu leather goods evoke nostalgia for Mediterranean
José Luis Bartolomé and Albert Escribano’s line of exquisitely made leather bags and shoes celebrate the nostalgic culture and folk traditions of Mediterranean Spain.
After several years immersed in the cultural blend of London and Paris, the pair returned to their Mediterranean roots to form HEREU. They set out to actively participate with local artisans at HEREU, rediscover craft practices, and use them to express their distinctive take on the lasting heritage of the city.
Distinguished by the use of grained leather, aged hardware, and textural detailing, each design is a modern reworking of traditional styles.
Inspired by the people and places of the Mediterranean, their schoolgirl loafers and classic Mary-Janes have become brand signatures.
Despite not being just a bag brand, HEREU's leather bags are outstanding.
HEREU's leather shoes and accessories are clearly inspired by the eclectic energy and heritage beauty of the region.
The contemporary craftsmanship of the label envisions a better future in which innovation and ethos exist together, both locally and internationally, embodied by practical designs that represent a timeless tradition.
