OUR STORY

“LITTLE GIRL WITH DREAMS BECOME WOMEN WITH VISION”
author unknown

Create things was important to me as breathing from a very young age. My passion for creative process has been so big, that it has led me to the place where I’m today – sunny coast in Spain, where I continue to pursue my dream surrounded by open minded people, sun & sea.
My love affair with leather began while I was working for Yves Saint Laurent and was given first-hand access to see how their meticulous leather goods were made. I was fascinated. Leather is a natural material unlike any others. It looks gorgeous old and new, worn and unused. Run your fingers along the surface, and the texture and the smell will engage with your senses. It is soulful and exclusive, with a raw beauty as nature intended it.

This fascination turned into passion.

In 2011, I convinced myself to turn my life into something I always dreamed of: to create my own leather design that I could touch, wear, and share. My passion for adventure then led me to Bali, Indonesia. One month stay became a one year journey in this magical creative sanctuary. There’s an artistic spirit that lives in Bali’s electric green rice paddies – and its warm ocean brings pure energy. The island was my root of inspirations, the foundation of my love for the tropical mood, and my passion to discover, travel, and have deeper connection with people I met along the way. In 2012, I came back to my hometown and a year after TANCHEL was born.

Now based in Costa Del Sol, Spain, TANCHEL continued to bloom – thanks to our ever growing community – as luxury snake skin & leather cuff bracelets that is made with love, passion and attention into every cut of leather that passes from our hands, to Yours.
