About

Hello we are Marta and Tommaso, we are 25 and 28 years old and we are the craftsmen hidden behind the mask of El Mato. We are both graduates respectively in "Food Science and technology" and "Philosophy" and after studies, we decided to dedicate ourselves to our passion: the craftsmanship of leather.  After a learning period, first experiences between markets and shops and so many efforts and sacrifices we created our small company El Mato. We work in Cremona, a small medieval town in northern Italy, in our laboratory few steps from the Duomo. Over time, increasing of customers and manual skills we bought sewing machines and job tools.  Have a look at our lab: https://it.pinterest.com/elmatolab/the-lab/ In our products design we always try to infuse style and personality to make them unique and recognizable: the simple, geometric lines and the cleaning and light shapes allow maximum optimization of materials and workmanship. In our shop you will only find the highest quality leathers and fabrics from Italian companies and worked in each process entirely in Italy.  We have a certification from: “The Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium” that guarantees tanning method and origin of the leather. This attention to raw materials supports and is reflected in the meticulous attention to detail in order to create the perfect union between different elements that carry out original and valuable products to the height of the great Italian handicraft tradition.

Behind the masks!

El mato hates adulteration, sophistication and says no to conformation!

We have always tried to lead an authentic, genuine life-style and have found that the key to that lies in our work:

Making hand-made leather and canvas bags and accessories brings us to establish a physical/mental contact with materials which, if worked hard with patience and passion, generate a creative flow that has disappeared in the mass-produced.

Vegetable tanned leather is a living material that changes over time with us. It gets darker day by day and is enhanced through touch and light so that each product will become the exact reflection of the experience, the age and the care of its owner.

The quality of furnishing fabrics from exclusively natural sources, such as canvas or cotton or linens, guide us in the creation of durable and long-lasting products that will never be static or rigid in appearance. Constant research and study of shapes and designs is aimed at developing a product that encompasses within itself the perfect fusion between concept and materials, avoiding the tasteless gimmicks, disguises or false  standards of the contemporary market.

The nature and naturalness of the craftsman’s creative process is like a river, in which we continually reflect and strengthen our contact with the materials, giving rise to unique and original  products with great personality
