Treat yourself to a splash of sunshine with the delicious designs by Hereu. The Catalan brand (“Hereu” means “heir” in Catalan) has been offering timeless pieces since 2014, created locally and responsibly in collaboration with talented craftsmen. It all started when José Bartolomé and Albert Escribano dreamt of founding their own brand, the perfect reflection of the culture in which they grew up, its traditions as well as its humanity and family values. Without further ado, they launched Hereu, a brand with a unique style forged around the notions of tradition, popular culture and references to the visual arts. Contemporary, relaxed and uninhibited, the brand is testament to the craftsmanship and expertise specific to the Catalan region, such as leather weaving, which they give a stylish modern twist. Hereu handbags are functional, nostalgic and packed with character, the perfect companions for all weathers and seasons, summer and winter alike. On sunny days, you can't beat a raffia tote. The Straw and Alqueria bags are the perfect summer companion with their leather handles in either soft or vibrant hues, enhancing their classic silhouette for a true statement style. Hereu totes are just as wearable in autumn and winter, too, in an all-leather version. We love the sculptural Onada and the mischievous Calella. Hereu also gives us bags in smaller sizes, such as the Espiga and the Fonda. And while we obviously love their bold styles, it's their local design that impresses us the most. More than just attractive fashion accessories, Hereu celebrates the wealth of expertise offered by a region full of character and charm.
