As an American born Colombian, Mauricio Orozco always wanted to look for ways that connected his two countries, and one of the most inspiring things that he found growing up in Colombia’s Coffee Growing Region was its beautiful landscapes, biodiversity and artesanal handicrafts.
After graduating as an Industrial Designer in 2007 as well as having a musical background, he came back to U.S looking for his dream job not knowing the very unfortunate economic collapse that was just about to happen. Therefore, after many years of failed professional job searching and working many blue collar jobs, on one of his trips to Colombia, he had the idea to design a custom made leather guitar strap and that’s when the business idea came up.
Desisano = Design + Artesano
is the concept of merging artesanal handicrafts with an Industrial Designer/Guitarist approach. That’s why in many of our creations, we combine natural handmade Colombian trims, like Caña Flecha, Fique, etc with distressed rustic leather, along with geometrical patterns and a bohemian taste.
