Every bag embodies every single woman working in the world who contributes to her own economy. This is why each one of our bags is different, unique, and special. Each piece of work opens a new chapter to a new adventure for strong and positive Duende women. The Duende bag has its own story and reflects the beauty in nature. Every stitch on every bag is carefully crafted to reproduce the scenes and colours from nature itself.
When a piece of work is handmade, it is vital to pay attention to details. The craftsmen transfer a part of themselves into their products. Their skills have been developed for years and they can produce fantastic pieces. We rely on traditional design techniques, and we take time to innovate on new processes…
…and materials in order to achieve unique designs. We care about the details of the handmade final piece, and we combine it with high-quality materials to create a lifetime product.
A traditional technique, also known as saddle stitch, is used to create the piece. As an ancient form of art, it begins with the drilling by hand of each hole on the piece of material that are then assembled. A subtle movement of the needle allows to achieve a smooth seam, which looks tidy on both sides. Hand sewing gives a superior quality and strength. Even when a stitch is broken, the bag cannot be torn (unlike machine stitches). The technique has an inherent beauty, which can only be achieved thanks to a hard work and dedication, to give as a result, a masterpiece.
