Sol & Luna is a Spanish manufacturer and retailer internationally recognised for its artisanal, elegantly covered leather objects and furniture. Its products are a combination of modern Spanish design and Paraguayan craftsmanship. Only the highest quality materials are given to uniquely talented artisans and the result is the incomparable Sol & Luna collection.
All of the leather is completely natural and products are hand-finished made from a fine quality cow leather. Great care is taken during the tanning process to retain the natural characteristics of the leather, which guarantees that each piece is unique.
The origins of the company began in 1998 when the owner Carolina Sanchez de Movellan and her husband were presented with an opportunity to invest in a cattle ranch in the jungle of the remote Paraguayan Chaco. They realised after several visits that the people of this region were talented craftsman “committed to the luxurious craft of leather", with generations of experience, and the opportunity to share their wonderful work became a passion.
In 2003 Sol & Luna was launched, focused on using wood and leather from the Chaco region to form a product line of sustainable goods combined with an unparalleled standard of excellence. Carolina initially decided on a quirky approach - to make unique products by covering unexpected objects with leather. They began with simple items such as salt and pepper grinders, flasks, trays, and ice buckets, the collection then grew through experimentation in hunting stools, tables, armchairs, desks, and coolers and has since included such extravagant pieces such as a Citroen 2CV automobile! At Sol & Luna the possibilities are limitless!
Their initial show at the Maison & Object show in Paris included a bicycle and a vespa motorcycle covered in leather - and it was in this show that one of their pieces won the "most desired object".
From restaurants and hotels around the world, yachts on the Mediterranean, villas in France to chalets in the Alps, the fusion of European designs and Paraguayan craftsmanship yields rare objects which are enjoyed in the world’s most exclusive settings.
