Overview
More
Munira Mendonca began working with leather in the 70’s when she arrived to Bubion, a small village in southern Spain, in the province of Granada. It was there that she learned and developed a passion for this traditional craft as she worked for some years in that beautiful setting.Now we find her workshop in the lovely old city of Granada where Islamic art pervades as is demonstrated by the famous Palace of the Alhambra which crowns the city. This influence is strong in “Munira” products. Over the years the workshop has become a family business which designs and hand crafts its unique range of leather articles. The actual height of expression has been achieved through the use of ancient embossing and polychrome techniques that survive, at least in Granada, in the hands of the last master, Diego Campos Mariscal. Munira is both proud of and profoundly grateful for his teaching and collaboration. Our study of ancient designs and calligraphies as well as our use of traditional tools situate our items well within the leather tradition of Spain; a rich but dying tradition that spans many hundreds of years.

If you are looking for leather goods in Granada, make sure you stop into this store. Customer service is great and the selection of products are beautiful. I also picked up some ceramic earrings here as well. Wonderful little shop on a Main Street.

While in Granada I purchased a necklace from Munira. I wanted another as a Christmas present. Contacted them, described the item I wanted; they sent me a picture to be certain of the correct item and the deal was closed. Easily and expertly done.
