"Children fighting" is the story of the gypsies of the Sacromonte of Granada, brought to art from the mind of Leandro and our hands, it is inspired by the documentary "Flamenco, meeting with the Spanish gypsies" (1962) made by the Swedes Lennart Olson and Dan Grenholm, an objective look at flamenco culture, who after passing through Leandro's creative world represents the image of a day in the Sacromonte in the sixties.
This work allows us to delve into the inner world of Leandro, and play with our materials within the imagination of this great designer.

In June 2018, Ubedies Artesanía collaborated again with fashion designer Leandro Cano, in a mystical setting, where the soul is filled with silence, a place of recollection very appropriate to see the beauty of Leandro's works, accompanied by our humble pamelas.
The pamelas are made of pita and bamboo, different fibers, worked with different techniques, which accompany the designs of this great fashion artist, some give lightness and transparency although they are made with the heaviest fiber, the others are dense but very light.
This is the magic of Leandro and it is our privilege to accompany him with our crafts, in these imaginations that he creates.
