Making a Demano product is an exciting and thorough process. It involves collecting the material, taking it to our workshop and cleaning it. So, we get our raw material ready, stripping it of its previous life in order to help it reincarnate into a new element. Its body will be the result of design, cutting and sewing, with the collaboration of small workshops in Barcelona, some of which employ workers with disabilities that carefully handcraft each one of our products. Its soul will remain forever Barcelona, and future experiences will be given by its new owners and their travels.
The history of Demano
In 1999 , Demano begins in Barcelona as an innovative project based on the respect for the environment and the aesthetic consciousness that seeks to give new life and meaning to discarded materials generated by the cultural, social and sports activities in the city. That is how an advertising banner, a kitesurfing kite, a piece of cloth or an umbrella become a bag, a backpack, a purse or a briefcase that begin their journey to tell the daily story of the city.
