Monoment is a young and talented team of Mexican creatives, passionate for designing and making the best leather products in Mexico. I was so excited to find their unique wares at a recent West Coast craft in San Francisco last year and knew that I wanted them in the collection. Meeting Daniela, the owner, sealed the deal. Daniela, has worked with me to create some unique pieces for Bestowe's upcoming Groomsman and Father's Day boxes, as well as a lovely wallet from her collection for one of our Mother's Day boxes.
Read on to hear and see more about my one on one with Daniela.

Daniela's passion for detail is definitely apparent in everything she does. I love the accent of her stitching and crops on the edges of her pieces. Not to mention her logo is a great reflection of a mark and business that is both elegant and sophisticatedly playful.
My background is in architecture, after working for 5 years as an architect in Mexico City I moved to Texas to work for a design studio. I´ve always had a passion for natural materials and I love working and building things with my hands, leather caught my attention when moving to Texas so I started experimenting with the diversity and beauty of the material. Soon after a few pieces, Monoment was created.
Monoment products are 100% handmade, from designing to packaging in Mexico City. They use only top-grain, vegetable tanned leather from the best tanneries in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico. Vegetable tanned leather is achieved using non-toxic organic barks and leaves for a long period. It's natural color with light and smooth aroma help develop a beautiful patina over time, making each piece truly unique.
