VISION

The idea of Samak comes to me in January 2011, simply because I like leather, it is robust, natural material and adquirs beauty over time.
My fist steps were traveling and importing finished products, initially in few quantities and slowly I was growing, selling in streetmarkets ,then customers asked me for repairs and I learnt, after I was taking orders for bags or wallets and that´s why I went to Spain and I bought whole leather pieces. With the help of a partner, we made many jobs: waiters’ wallets, theater costumes, restaurant menus, covers for musicians , our strength was that we never rejected an order, a new challenge.
Now I work alone, the initial idea of Samak was to make money but it developed on its own to become a life project. A company project, in which a person like me, only one, self-taught, imports the best quality of Spanish leather, personally buys the hardware abroad, sews each Stitch with the hand,create designs, advertising, website, photos, contact with the customer, organize the sale and every week creates a new product.
It´s a concept, an idea of commerce, where comes what we use, our favorite things, who made them? How? Where? And Why?
Mines have a lot of history and a lot of passion. It´s a personal development.

I use vegetable tanned leather (meaning leather tanned with crust from trees and water) which I buy from a small family-run tannery in the north of spain. I use aswell oiled leather from calf, thick half grain cattle hide , foal and suede from bovine leather.
I live in Berlin most of the time, working at home or in a workshop nearby. I have many tools and a sewing machine that I never use.
