Who is Olalla Gambin

Who is Olalla Gambin

I would like to share with you the manufacturing process of our handbags. Our workshop is in Ubrique, in the province of Cádiz, a small village with a long tradition of craftsmanship.

The preferred materials used are silk and leather.

Silk is a thin fabric, so before printing it, we have to give it body. To do this, we stick a twill consisting of cotton fabric to it, so that the handbag is soft, light but with enough texture to be able to work with it. We are concerned about the weight of the handbags, so we always look for light leathers, which provide quality but not weight.

Once the silk is ready, we move on to printing. We use the Transfer technique; it consists of screen-printed inks printed on siliconised paper support to be later transferred to textile support; in this case, heat is applied to the silk at a temperature of 200º with specialised printing machines.

The fabric prepared; with this process, we achieved that the silk becomes a resistant fabric; this is essential as the bags must be used on rainy days and be resistant to common stains.

The leather we use, as mentioned above, is light leather from our supplier in Alicante, which offers us a wide range of colours to work with.

The last step is to follow the pattern of the handbag; choosing the leather and its colour, zips, hardware, sewing, dyeing the edges of the leather, checking the details, and continue working on the preparation of the following collection.
The search for new masterpieces of art and collaborations with contemporary painters.

Choose your favourite painting, and we will make sure you can dress it up in a bag. At Customer Service, we provide you with all the information by e-mail: info@olallagambin.com or WhatsApp 610 29 19 67.
