Estados was founded by Anglo-South American brother and sister team Hugo Lesser and Marisa Orchard in 2010. We've been surrounded by beautiful Argentine leather goods all our lives. Our parents traveled to Argentina regularly for 30 years, inevitably returning laden with wallets, purses, handbags and belts. The quality of the leather, they said, surpassed anything available in Europe or the States. Our designs are hand-crafted in a small workshop in the foothills of the Andes solely from Grade 1 full grain calf hides. Estados is short for Estados Animicos, which means 'states of mind', 'moods' or 'soul states' in Spanish. This reflects our design ethos of combining different leathers.
