High quality leather boots and accessories, handmade by master artisans in Colombia.
Mamahuhu Colombia is a fashion company producing high quality leather shoes and bags. Our small, international team works directly with the artisans in Colombia to bring you the highest quality product possible at a fair price.
After successfully launching our women’s line earlier this year, we are excited to introduce MORENO, our new men’s leather boots and accessories line. It's all about quality, functional fashion without the high-end price tags.
As shipping individual orders or small batches directly from our workshop in Bogota, Colombia is prohibitively expensive, we are unable to offer our latest products to our friends in the U.S. and around the world until we can export at least a few dozen orders and refresh our inventory in Miami. That’s where you come in!
- You will have the opportunity to receive a handmade pair of MORENO leather boots or a leather accessory before they’re available anywhere else!
- You will be supporting smart, ethical manufacturing methods! Unlike brands that outsource production, we are personally involved in every step of the process.
- You will help us to keep up to 15 highly skilled artisans employed!
Successfully funded, we’ll be able to finish our first run of MORENO boots and accessories in August/September, ship them in bulk to Miami, and fulfill all of our backers’ rewards as autumn begins.
A team of three young entrepreneurs:
- Carolina Rodriguez, from Colombia: Co-founder, Lead Designer
- Luis Moreno, from Spain: Co-founder, Operations
- Jack Dorney, from USA: Webmaster, Sales and Marketing
From our start in 2010, we fell in love with the Colombian fashion scene. We found that it allowed a rare opportunity to exercise complete control over the entire process - from design to material selection to production. This way, we are able to ensure a superior quality and offer limited or unique products based on our fans’ feedback. We love to give you what you want!
If you’re ready to become a part of the MORENO brand, or if you would simply like to support what we're doing, please consider backing us. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about this project as well; you can get the word out by pinning us on Pinterest and following us on Facebook or Twitter. Thanks so much for your support!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Fashion is an inherently difficult business, and the burdens to delivering a quality product in a timely manner are numerous. Designing, sourcing, manufacturing, exporting - all of these activities require sufficient knowledge and experience to overcome.
We have already dealt with the common problems that affect such projects - material or labor shortage, legal issues in exporting/importing - as we have already successfully delivered over 200 items through our previous Kickstarter project.
Our organizational structure, with management spread between the U.S. and Colombia, allows us to deal with sourcing or manufacturing problems directly, without the need of an intermediary. Moreover, for this project, we have prepared two teams of artisans to produce these high quality boots, in the event that the reach of the campaign is greater than expected. We are basically trained in all difficult stages, and ready to do it.
A chart with the sizes is available in update #2, covering US sizes and EU sizes. In general, all US sizes will be available, from US5 to US12. Moreover, for those of you with special requirements (extra wide for example), once the campaign is finished, you can even send us your specific measures (width and length) so that we take them into account when the artisan is building your pair.
All of our products are handmade - making a pair of shoes, for example, includes cutting the leather and nailing it to the shoetree to sit for 24 hours, so it takes time and effort. The trade off for producing well-made shoes is that we aren't able to make them as quickly as a more industrial operation.
That is, really, the perfect choice! Pledge for the boots you would like and then just add $45 when asked for your exact pledge amount. That way, you will be receiving together an amazing pair of leather boots and the perfect complement to them! :)
