Today we are turning our gaze to the Andalusian lands to tell you about the most significant fashion brands of the region. Prestigious brands such as Puleva, Lanjarón, Cruzcampo or Alhambra beers have emerged. However, with regards to fashion it is the creativity that characterises it. Brands such as El Caballo of Seville, and Menbur shoes and accessories from Granada, are a reflection of the fashion thriving in this exciting region.
The first brand El Caballo, is a faithful reflection of the agricultural, and equestrian sports that have prevailed throughout the history of the city of Seville. Its name is synonymous of the connection with this animal for which they produced the first cowboy saddles and tack, and farming implements bearing this name since 1892. Subsequent to this, they moved on to producing artisan products for equestrian sports and hunting, and from there it became fashionable, whilst always maintaining to the maximum the origins of the brand. Top quality materials, and perfectly finished products, combining traditional and modern design, is the heart of the identity of this Sevillian brand that has passed beyond our borders to launch its fantastic products in countries like Mexico and Japan.
At the beginning of the XX Century, the Mena family opened their first shop in Granada where they sold leather goods and leather horse equipment. A few years later, they decided to create the brand Menbur that mainly focused on the production and sale of high quality bags and accessories. In the 90s they became a European reference for high quality bags and accessories, manufactured with the finest materials and for creating increasingly modern and feminine designs. To broaden their market, they introduced other brands such as Pilar Abril which focused on a very modern market but one that demanded very high quality products, as well as Ingrapel. As a result, the brand Menbur has strengthened its position in the national and international market with its modern designs that are a wardrobe essential.
