Wicker and leather furniture line is made of beautiful patterns and decorative stitches. Even the bookshelf shows stitched colorful leather patches and seams.
But our favorite piece of the Cangaco collection is this almost neon orange and turquoise seat that shows off the wicker carcass on the seat a bit and mesmerizes with its complex beautiful patterns.
In addition to their swashbuckling attitude, the Cangaceiros were also known for their peculiar clothing – wide-brimmed hats, side bags, boots, belts, vests – made of decorated leather, which protected them on their long journeys through the backlands,”
