We are husband and wife team, Nora, a seamstress, and Attila Magyar, 5th generation leather worker.
My brother Levente Magyar, co-founded our multiple award-winning company in our new home Kinsale, Co, Cork in 2011. Levente’s studies in fine art combined with our Hungarian leather-crafting heritage, and personal interests in environmental issues, inspired us to become 1st generation up-cyclers. With salvaged nautical materials in our Irish coastal hometown, we embraced our parents’ training and trade secrets, and our new adventure, Mamukko, was born.
We use local materials as well as ocean-race sails, decommissioned rubber life rafts and airplane parts combining with upcycled or top quality Italian veg tan leather. Mamukko has pioneered the re-use of natural rubber life rafts since 2014. Our handcrafted, small-batch range of sustainable lifestlye bags are produced in our Kinsale workshop.
“We do it for the love, not for the likes. Proudly carry on our family heritage, and hope to pass on our knowledge and skills to the next generations .“ Attila Magyar – co – founder, owner.
