Our history & values
The bindery founded by master bookbinder Eduardo Carrillo has served bookbinding and book restoration services for more than 25 years to companies, government agencies and individuals, but there came a time when the culture for the quality and handmade work changed putting at risk of extinction this ancient craft.
In 2013 David Carrillo, his son, also known as “David Mubien” founded Mubien Studio after developing his career in Madrid and Santander during the last 10 years specializing in branding, identity and graphic design for national and international clients.
“United we stand,
divided we fall”
Currently, Mubien is a design and bookbinding studio based in Santander, Spain. We specialize in branding, corporate identity and bookbinding. We enjoy researching new formulas, combinations and techniques to apply them in the work we do for our clients.
We also provide all type of services and finishes for designers without minimum order (bookbinding, engraving, letterpress, packaging, painted edges…). Our workspace includes machines with over a century old, we have a large engraving area, guillotines, presses and the studio area with an incredible view.
