P1220626Was introduced to store owner and had a chat with Ms Macy Lazaro who also designs the bags they make. Her sister, Mariel is the chemist in the brood. Wow, very impressive! P1220637“It was our kanunu-nunuan the Hermoso family who started this business of making leather since 1901. We supplied to a lot of manufacturers of furnitures, shoes and bags,” shares Macy.
