Leather that lifts you everyday

  • • Mario's career began as a hobby
  • • His brand Febó de Momplet manufactures leather accessories
  • • He lives in Valencia

One day, while Mario Momplet Girona was in his garage, he got excited thinking about the variety of objects that can be created out of leather. Little by little, his restlessness drove him to search for processes, methodologies and techniques and eventually to undertake further studies in Industrial Design and Contemporary Crafts. For him, the leathercraft is very clean and low-waste, almost 100 percent of the material is used. "The fact that a material can convey such clear connotations of warmth, or that it has its own language made me fall in love," says Momplet. His workshop is now located in Torrent, in Valencia, and it was whilst working here that in 2020 he was a finalist in his community's awards.
