About the Maker, Sofía Protti: Through Cueropapel&tijera I wish the world to enjoy leather in a practical and useful sense, respectful of the environment and that finally our products become a form of expression of what it is and what is believed.
I am a Costa Rican, industrial designer, entrepreneur and dreamer, my products are full of passion, have a cultural flavor and a quality requirement that I hope many will be able to appreciate.
In leather, I have found the perfect material, inspiration and prominence of my work as a designer. Leather itself is beautiful, strong and versatile. It is docile, malleable and rigid at the same time. I am passionate to see it, smell it and touch it. It's imperfections, the skin scars, its texture and the brightness it takes over time are design elements in constant action.
