Some of you have spoken to me on the social media about this brand, and it was time for NUMON to have its blog post.

Ramón & Núria in NUMON workshop

Núria is passionate about recycling and vintage style, she studied Fashion Design and when she finished she had a dream: to create “Bags with history”. In 2009 she met his partner Ramon, who made wallets with recycled comics as a hobby, which today still sell through their website. Together they launched NUMON, although at present only Núria is behind this interesting project, a brand of recycled and vegan accessories, handmade in her small workshop in Reus.

Bag by Herdentier

The use of cork as a substitute of leather and other materials is booming. Portugal and Spain concentrated its production worldwide. It is a versatile, durable, soft, breathable and waterproof material. Designers are making it colourfull with dyes and prints that give a unique style when creating accesories. In addition, this can be consider a material for sustainable consumption, is a part of a tree that can be extracted without causing damage to it and grows again over the years.

I would like to show you some examples of handmade small companies that prove the variety of applications that can be given in bags and accesories.

CORKOR (Handmade in Portugal)

A small Portuguese company running by Natalia and Vitor Lopes Guerreiro, located in Palmela, near Coruche, one of the largest cork producing areas worldwide. They refer to cork as a natural wonder. They handle the entire process of production of most of its products from design to craft creation. One of their goal is to create local employment, an example is their larger bags, handmade by a family in the area.
