KOMPANERO Is a range of leather accessories with a distinctive weathered look, vintage appeal and a contemporary design inspired by the concept of 'leather being a timeless companion'.
The brand name KOMPANERO is inspired from the Spanish word that means “Companion” denoting what personal baggage is all about.
The Kompanero style is for the global audience as it celebrates the vintage era where every piece crafted feels like a heirloom passed down generations to you. They claim that their crafted pieces age like wine and develop their own character as you use it!
Kompanero strives to be sustainable in all aspects be it the eco-friendly packaging, plastic free stores, cotton lining inside our bags, usage of vegetable tanned leather etc.
Also, Kompanero is a strong advocate of conscious capitalism. It is focused to develop communities by training unskilled workforce with dying artisanship techniques. A large percentage this workforce is women from local communities. The latest initiative has been training a community of auditory and verbally challenged women who live in a destitute home, with artisanship techniques and employs them contractually, thereby creating a working opportunity for them that did not exist.
