Expertly tooled leather, in pleasing shades of tan, beige, or rich sienna, is crafted into a range of enchanting goods at the hands of Argentinian master artisan, Jerónimo Coll. He is perhaps best known for the knives and dining sets he makes. With handles of finely sewn leather in alternating colors and meticulous patterns, they’re suitable for a king’s table. Coll also designs belts, finished with fine buckles of gold or silver—or sometimes a combination of both. Velvety soft leather wallets feature painstakingly stitched, interior detailing. Each of Coll’s works are crafted as treasures for a lifetime.
“Since I can remember, I’ve worked with leather,” says Coll. “Just as my father did in his workshop.” Coll’s is a highly specialized type of leatherworking called sogueria, which he practices in his artist workshop in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He sources the vast majority of his raw material from within his country, from leather from local cattle yards to silver from regional mines; and his team of artisans are well-trained in the design sensibilities and striking detail that Coll is so keen to share with the world.
