Designer Javier Prieto Martínez created these leather wall pockets as part of a collection which explores the role of leather goods in the home.

Storage space can be sparse in compact urban housing, creating a demand for self-assembled shelving units, which require tools, and can be difficult to setup. These wall pockets serve as a solution to shelving as they can be hung anywhere in the home with minimal assembly. The products are ideal for holding accessories, books, pens and paper or miscellaneous items.

Each pocket is hand-stitched with a waxed thread and hangs from a leather rope. Martínez's leather creations are available in a variety of colors that range from light to dark. Over time, the leather will age, offering a home decor piece with a sense of character.
