Campana Brothers base Cangaço furniture on Brazilian bandits' clothing


design duo Fernando and Humberto Campana have created a collection of furniture that references the decorated leather clothing worn by Brazil's 19th-century Cangaceiros bandits.

The Cangaço collection was created for São Paulo gallery Firma Casa – also designed by the Campana Brothers – and consists of six leather and wicker furniture pieces.

It is based on clothing associated with the late 19th-century Cangaço movement of nomadic bandits, which occurred when peasants in Brazil's arid northeast rose up against wealthy landowners.

"In addition to their swashbuckling attitude, the Cangaceiros were also known for their peculiar clothing – wide-brimmed hats, side bags, boots, belts, vests – made of decorated leather, which protected them on their long journeys through the backlands," said a statement from Firma Casa.

The collection was made in partnership with Espedito Seleiro, who comes from a traditional family of leather craftsmen that made clothes for the Cangaceiros.
