Do you consider yourself a truly lover of the animal print? If so, you probably know that this print has become one of the fashion-musts for this season.
Sometimes, animal prints come in “small doses”, and we use them in our accessories or shoes. However, we have seen this print covering coats and jackets during the 2016 Fashion Shows.
The truth is that, the animal print is a never-ending trend, and that, celebs and fashionistas stick to it absolutely every season.

As we love timeless but trendy fashion, and we are aware how much you love to discover new and unique brands, we have found an accessories’ brand that has a lot to do with animal prints: Black Mamba (the name refers to one of most dangerous snakes all around the world, as the snake print is probably the most popular one inside Black Mamba´s collections).

Do you want to know more about this fashion brand from Ibiza? Get inside Black Mamba´s fashion universe and get addicted to this leather goods brand:

Fashion Designer María Noel Bellora (born in Uruguay but raised in Ibiza) founded Black Mamba in 2012 on the White Isle. However, this was not María´s first fashion experience, she was born surrounded by patchwork and sewing machines: Her granddad was a really creative person and he used to fix shoes, while her grandmother used to sew for the church, and her mother works as an haute couture designer. Her fashion history made it really easy for María to start designing and making her own clothes and accessories.

The most important about Black Mamba is that its fashion items are made of high-quality exotic skins. María works with snake, crocodile, alligator and Mongolian sheep leathers to make spectacular, unique and one-of-a-kind pieces.
Animal skins María works with always come from certified farms, and, they are colour dyed in Spain (by qualified tanners, and sometimes, using handmade processes such as an airbrush). It is precisely the ink colour of the items what makes them so impressive and beautiful!
María is the responsible for choosing the color of the products. She makes this election taking into account the colour trends of the season. This way, all her accessories are just inimitable!

We knew it! Now you are thinking about getting yourself one of Black Mamba´s stunning items, right? The bad news is that you will have to wait until summer because María only sells their products at Las Dalias Hippie Market when Ibiza´s summer season starts. At the Black Mamba stand you will be able to find bags, clutches, belt pouches, wallets, belts and vests, all made in high-quality leather and with animal motifs.

There is no doubt that Black Mamba´s collections are designed to dress adventurous, wild, sexy and trendy women. Our advice to combine Black Mamba´s statement accessories is to match them with a basic look. This way, María´s accessories will stand out more than anything else on your outfit!

Right now María is “locked up” into her Ibiza´s small atelier focused on the summer of 2016 production, because almost all her items are handmade with love – while just a few are made with her sewing machine.

If you can´t wait until the summer to check out the best exotic skin’ accessories of Ibiza, you should scroll up to our photo gallery,. And meanwhile, start making your Black Mamba´s shopping list with all the items you can´t-miss next season!
