Daniel Chong, Backpacks, Bags, Purses, Wallets, Bum Bags, Travel Bags and much more.
All our Daniel Chong pieces are lined with recycled cotton and both the backpacks and bags have an inside pocket and a label with our phrase "dont't forget to smile". The large backpacks can carry up to 15 kilos and the small ones up to 10 kilos.
The handles of the backpack are made of high quality braided cotton for comfort, the short handles are made of vegetable tanned leather with reinforced rivets to balance the weight.
The base of our products are made of vegan leather, scratch-resistant and waterproof, to withstand the impact of the ground.More
What makes our product different? We believe that our pieces have the possibility to be combined in infinite ways in terms of shape, size and colour.
We offer upholstery fabrics, vegan leathers and vegetable tanned cowhides. Our fabrics are made from recycled materials which allows us to collaborate with industry. From these materials, we send them to our atelier, where we make all the combinations and send them to our workshops in Pamplona and Elche.
We do not define our collections by seasons, which means that our pieces are timeless, although we do have favourite prints for our summer capsule collections, where stripes always predominate.
The materials themselves inspire us when creating new products, always based on the characteristic of the brand, which is the use of colour.
All our products are made with recycled cotton upholstery fabrics or fabrics obtained from recycled PET bottles in the case of waterproof items.
We also use vegetable tanned leather parts, so we do not recommend washing in washing machines or tumble dryers.
You can use upholstery cleaning products such as sofas, or soap and water with a delicate brush or damp cloth. We recommend hand washing.
All our products have a guarantee of quality in terms of durability and resistance.
I studied Design and Audiovisual Communication at the University of Palermo (Buenos Aires, Argentina) and I did a specialization in Marketing and Advertising at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain).
I finished my degree in 2009 while working as an administrative assistant in a company. I started to shape my accessories brand as a consequence of the boredom I felt in the office world.
I applied everything I learnt in my audiovisual communication degree to this project. Both in the image area of the brand and in the composition of a piece.
We currently have 3 main workshops, Lavapiés, where the fabrics and combinations of materials are selected. In the Elche and Pamplona workshops, several women sew all our pieces with great care. Consonance is fundamental in our work teams to guarantee the essence and identity of our pieces.
"I FIND INSPIRATION IN PEOPLE WHO TAKE RISKS, WHO ARE ENTHUSIASTIC. I ALSO FIND INSPIRATION IN MUSIC, THEATRE AND ALL KINDS OF ARTISTIC EXPRESSION. FILM COMPOSITION HAS HELPED ME A LOT IN MY WORK, BOTH IN TERMS OF COLOUR AND FORM. BUT ABOVE ALL IT INSPIRES ME TO TRAVEL AND GET TO KNOW NEW CULTURES.Less
