Our founding team felt that most leather accessories in the market had started to look like their synthetic counterparts.They had classic run-of-the mill finishes and couldn't be differentiated from synthetic products.
This bothered us, and our design research team worked extensively to build leather products from the ground up, such that they are so well differentiated from Synthetic/non-leather products; to the extent that our leather products that should not ever need a "Genuine Leather Stamp".
To achieve this we had to invent a way to age leather products as the ageing of a natural leather patina is beautiful and unique to leather and cannot be achieved by synthetic materials. So we came up with "Piece Dyeing". The result was a signature KOMPANERO vintage aged finish which is truly unqiue and inimitable.
Each KOMPANERO bag is handcrafted and piece-dyed. They are then individually distressed. Each of them is unique. One of a kind. Even the term 'limited edition' would seem a misfit.
