The magazine “Marroquinería Española” has published an article of the history of Piel Frama. A journey from our beginnings until today, with great details.
“From Ronald Reagan to Julio Iglesias, the Rolling Stones, Madonna and Naomi Campbell, there are many celebrities that could not resist the design and quality of Piel Frama products. This Spanish company is known as a visionary enterprise with a vision, in which the future also holds the key to international vocation. Located in Ubrique (Cádiz) it is known in major global markets as a leading name, specializing in leather cases for mobile devices (like phones, tablets, e-readers…)
The history of over 35 years in the development and design of quality products have earned it a privileged position among consumers. “We started making leather cases for mobile phones in 1984, though we have been making leather goods since 1975. It was our company, in fact, that started selling mobile phone cases in the US, when in Europe, they were unheard of. And when the first mobile phone manufacturer appeared in Spain, we were already widely experienced in making something markets would demand. We became innovators in this industry sector”, Francisco J. López explains, as the Director of Piel Frama.
The good name of this company reached the highest spheres, including the US White House, and Ronald Reagan asked this Spanish company to manufacture a personal item for him: a briefcase made from genuine ostrich skin, with a secret video camera inside. FBI agents reached the airport of Málaga to pick up this very special product ordered by the US President. And the success of this briefcase was such that years later it was shown at the MOMA – Museum of Modern Art – in New York, where thousands of visitors could see it every day.
