In our shop, we sell handmade leather products of high quality. These are handmade by local craftsmen with respect for old traditions and in modern Scandinavian design. We have our own workshop, where we hand make all of our products. We believe in fair business. We pay a good and fair salary to all our employees. We pay social security to secure not only our employees but also their families. We do only use cow leather and pigskin in our bags. Our leather comes from Nicaraguan cows. It is free range cows with imperfections like scars and bruises. Just like all of us. These imperfections are an important part of our design and give the bags character and make them unique.

Large selection of leather goods reasonably priced, craftsmen on premises, staff attentive put not pushy. Really great quality for the price and it is actually made in Nicaragua!

I loved everything about Granada and can't wait to get back, but in terms of good quality souvenirs it is a little lacking. Thank goodness for Soy Nica. Beautiful, fair priced leather goods in every price range. All handmade right in Granada.
