ABOUT IALA DIEZ
Elevated basic bags.
Iala Díez is a leather accessories brand that was born in 2015 with the aspiration to bring the high level craftsmanship closer to contemporary woman.
Iala Diez’s bags are thought for a modern and natural woman, woman who needs essential, comfortable and fresh pieces with a touch of modern tradition. Each piece oozes simplicity and subtlety and is designed and produced to last.
Timeless pieces with a strong touch of new tradition.
The warmth of leather and handmade work give personality to our bags. Simplicity is the best ornament.
Iala Diez works for those that are searching for something else behind the objects. We offer “this something else” through a very special production process; hand stitching. For us, this feature is also an aesthetic element that makes our bags really unique.
At Iala Diez, the luxury is time, dedication, roots, identity, sensibility, skill, passion and sustainability. We try to place on every bag a little of these values.
IALA DiEZ THROUGH DANCE
Show the power of simplicity,
feel the truth of handmade work,
find the beauty in the small details,
discover the subtlety of a new tradition.
SLOW PRODUCTION -100% HANDSTITCHED.
The seams of our bags are made by hand, stitch by stitch, with time and the expertise of the artisans, using just two needles and waxed thread. This process guarantees long lasting seams and gives a unique aesthetic to each piece.
Iala Díez is born with the compromise to recover the connection between the high quality handmade work and the financial reward. The value of our goods is extremely connected with the time production and the leather quality.
HONEST AND SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
The local development is the key to get a sustainable economy. The identity of Iala Díez is rooted in the region of Castilla y Leon (Spain), an area with centuries of history in craftsmanship and leather production.
In our region, there are a couple of small towns whose economy is based on leather traditional production. Here we get a very special material, vegetable tanned leather, which is produced in small traditional factories with a 100% vegetable tanning process using mimosa extract.
