The name Cuero&Mør comes from Cuero, the Spanish word for leather and Mør, the Danish word for well done. Husband and wife pair Maria & Pepe design and operate the brand. Maria went to medical school which allowed her to realize a passion for attention to detail, the value of treating natural materials, and how to find the right balance on each part that compounds the whole design. Pepe developed a strong connection with functionality and shape through rigorous study while in architecture school, which is further developed with their handcrafted products. The line seeks to go back to the essentials.
