Cuero Papel y Tijera
Founder(s): Sofía Protti Coto
Location: San José, Costa Rica
Sofía, the founder, took over her grandfather’s leather workshop in 2006 and turned a local artisan’s traditional shop into a design forward, premium leather goods brand that believes in employing local skilled workers and maintains the essence and values of the small artisanal workshop her grandfather fostered.
As an industrial designer, entrepreneur and dreamer she makes sure her products are full of passion, cultural taste and are held to the highest of standards.
She wants people to enjoy and understand leather in a useful, practical way but also in an enviromentally conscious way.
Her goal is to make Costa Rican works of art that are enhanced by the love with which they are made, the culture they represent and the opportunities created for the human talent behind them.
