BARADA AND ANA MARÍA VALLE, FROM ANDALUSIA WITH LOVE

One may wonder if twelve years is enough to create a successful international brand of leather bags that is based in a town in Andalusia – Ubrique –, whose foundations are based in love for this land, passion for nature and the skills of artisans.

Ana María Valle has got the answer. Since 2001, Ana María Valle, Managing Director of Barada, has been able to transmit her team the passion and pride of making high end products that are 100% designed and made in the south of Spain and are also very much appreciated all around the world.

Barada’s leather bags and accessories are experimenting an unprecedented international expansion. Despite the international worldwide recession and the pessimistic atmosphere in many industrial sectors, Ana María Valle has made up a team that is able to make things well. This group of people are proud of its origins and treasure an innate “love for leather” and new challenges.

Naturally tanned calf leather, Lamb Nappa leather, ostrich leather have been given to the best artisans and the most innovative designers. They always ask Ana María for advice since she has grown up in the leather business. She belongs to one of the most reputable linages in the leather goods industry in Andalusia.

A secret for this? Perhaps, wise and a dose of intuition. She has gone for fostering creativity and emerging talented designers, which has led Barada and the town of Ubrique become a model for the leather goods industry worldwide.

Every year, Barada’s collections treasure the essence of this land and those who believe and appreciate work well done. Ana Maria Valle and her team has gone hand in hand for more than twelve years trying to show passion and love for leather from Andalusia to the rest of the world.

Barada introduces their SS12 Navy Collection

Barada introduces their SS12 Collection “Navy”. The Collection is inspired by the sea and light. Sailor Blue shades are present in the collection. This luxurious collection features navy blue & white full grain leathers and high quality gold metal trims. Each bag has been handcrafted following Barada’s quality standards.

The photo shoot of this SS12 collection was held on the waterfront of “Sancti Petri”, which means “Holy rock”. It was a sacred place where there used to be a sanctuary in which the Phoenicians worshiped Goddess Melkart.

The beauty and lighting of the so-called “Coast of the Light” at the town of Chiclana in the province of Cádiz (Andalusia) is the perfect framework for our bags.

You can also find red and pink bags with pleats and geometric shapes in a blue and white colour combination, which leads the main role in the collection.
