LOEWE is one of the world’s major luxury houses, founded in 1846 in Spain, and is today under the creative direction of Jonathan Anderson.
Since our beginnings as a leathermaking collective, our journey has been defined by an obsessive focus on craft and unmatched expertise with leather.
Originally founded in 1846 by a group of Spanish craftspeople in Madrid, the house was later unified in 1872 under the name of the technically gifted leathermaker Enrique Loewe Roessberg, who arrived from Germany and drove the brand forwards.
Based out of our main workshop in Madrid ever since, our master artisans have long valued artisanal techniques in their approach to design and manufacture, combining accumulated craft knowledge with new technologies to produce truly modern objects of desire.
These core values are reflected in our belief in the importance of craft in today’s culture, the revival of poignant art and historical references to inspire collections and our ongoing support of contemporary art, craft and culture around the world.
