So what’s so special about leather? Is it the smell, the texture, the way that it ages and softens so beautifully…? Or is it all of those qualities that make it a truly unique material to use and work with?
Leather has always been special to me. Good quality leather glows from within and ages so beautifully.
The Photograph below was a recent commission showing the incredible natural scaring that can appear in leather.
So when I was recently asked to make a leather project bag for a friends birthday I jumped at the chance. I made her a two skein project bag with her company logo embossed in gold on the front. It was a really special project for me and one that I really enjoyed making. After seeing the project bag again after a a few months use I was amazed at how beautifully the leather has softened. So there was only one thing for it… I made up more and set up a little Etsy shop so that other could enjoy these too.
If you’re looking for something a little bit different to the normal project bag then pop on over to our Etsy shop and have a look, I have three different sizes available to pre order a the moment and if you would like something specific then please get in touch and I can make you something to fill your specifications.
