El Caballo – A Traditional Craft Merged with Innovative Design

The original workshop located in Arenal Quarter near the bull ring in Seville, El Caballo is a design label that grew from the Spanish equestrian world. A family run firm in business since 1892, El Caballo remains true to tradition by using old age techniques – like using natural vegetable-tanned cowhide cured without chemical agentswhile also embracing new innovative design. Their expertise in all things equestrian and leather has allowed El Caballo and their Creative Director Nicholas Vandelet make an impact in the fashion world, recently winning a L’Oreal award.

El Caballo staff were friendly and kind enough to show me a functioning workshop adjacent to the shop floor – as seen below. It was amazing to see the different techniques used to make the excellent products on display in the shop. I’m sure their designs will hit Irish shops in the near future.
