STORY

THE PERAEQUE STORY

  Peraeque evolved from the vision of our creative director, Douglas Murray, to re-interpret the design of men’s wallets and create exceptionally compact yet functional accessories.  Peraeque’s foundation product, the Peraeque compact wallet for men, features a unique bound centre design, with pockets that expand to accept multiple cards when the wallet is opened, and contract when the wallet is closed to secure the contents. This unique design optimises the use of space without limiting functionality.  To develop the Peraeque compact wallet for men, we partnered with a team of master artisans from an area of Spain with over two hundred years of leatherworking heritage.  Recognised as some of the finest artisans in the world, we collaborated in a rigorous development process to refine the Peraeque compact wallet design yielding a men’s wallet that merges superior design with exceptional craftsmanship.  The Peraeque compact billfold evolved thereafter and pursuit of design excellence in men’s leather goods continues today.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY 

At Peraeque we aspire to a level of design efficiency that optimises use of material.  Every element must have a purpose.  When this philosophy is executed properly, we believe the aesthetic appeal of the design naturally follows.  To do a design justice, it must be made in the best possible way.  At Peraeque, we partner with a team of Spanish artisans recognised as some of the finest in the world.  Their traditional skills perfected over generations have been augmented with modern techniques over time, providing a range of possibilities when bringing a design to life.  We commit to a rigorous process or refinement with each new design.  We are meticulous in our approach, and relentless in our manner.   We don’t allow for compromise to ensure we deliver the best.
