This is a statement that defines what Musleather is today. Co-founder of the company, Álvaro Sousa began a lace company for the footwear industry in 1994. Due to the excess of waste in the leather industry the entrepreneur Alvaro began to produce/make belts, all of them by hand, and sold them door to door to shopkeepers. This product turned out to be, and even still today, the core of the company’s business. The different vision at the time and the commitment to quality paid off and led the company, after four years, to export a large part of its production, reaching the current 80% of the market. England, Sweden, Denmark, and United States of America are amongst the main exportation markets.
Without ever losing its own identity, Musleather was born through a good relationship between two family members which gradually led up to the present eleven collaborators. Today, the work team comprises of the managing partner Álvaro Sousa who is also the clientele manager, José Pereira who is responsible for the creative process and Sérgio Barroso, the company’s financial manager.
