“Committed to the luxurious craft of leather,” best describes the artisans of Sol & Luna, a Spanish manufacturer and retailer which has become internationally known for its objects and furniture elegantly covered in leather.
It all started when the owners of Sol&Luna were presented with an opportunity to invest in a cattle ranch in the jungle of the remote Paraguayan Chaco. After several visits it became clear that over generations, the people of this region had become agile craftsman in leather 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; only the highest quality materials are given to uniquely talented artisans and the result is the incomparable Sol&Luna Collection.
Starting 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 as bicycles and even a Citroen 2CV automobile! At Sol & Luna the possibilities are limitless!
The original Sol&Luna boutique continues to please clients from its location in the famed Barrio de Salamanca Shopping District in Madrid and in order to meet the growing international demand; Sol & Luna objects are now available through exclusive retailers in Paris, New York, London…
From restaurants and hotels around the world, to yachts on the Mediterranean to villas in France to chalets in the Alps, the fusion of European designs and Paraguayan craftsmanship yields rare objects which our clients enjoy in the world’s most exclusive settings.
Sol&Luna’s leather is completely natural and our 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. Examination of the finished product will reveal some variations of colour, graining and briar marks from scratches sustained during the life time of the animal. All of which guarantee that each piece is unique.
For the maintenance of the leather, we recommend to use either vaseline or special wax for the leather or hand creme such as “Nivea“. It is very important not to let the leather dry. Do not exposure the leather to the direct sun or heating.
Our products have a two-year guarantee against any manufacturing defect although it does not cover a bad use. Any defect due to misuse of materials (blows, cleaning with abrasive products, exposure to the sun, etc.) is excluded from the guarantee, and those that have been damaged by being near heating or moisture. Sol&Luna’s leather is completely fireproof and therefore suitable for public use projects.
All of the Sol & Luna chairs are made to order in 3-4 months.
