It starts with the hide. I roll it out and examine all it's unique edges and characteristics, deciding how to best incorporate these elements into my designs.
After the larger pieces are cut, the left over scraps are used for small accessories, leather leaves or flowers, and packaging. Nothing goes to waste!
Pieces are constructed using machine and hand stitching.
Handwork is not limited to sewing. All holes, rivets and grommets are set by hand.
Vintage buckles, hand set bezeled stones or handcrafted metal work is added.
With so many unique leathers, vintage pieces and handmade elements, it's easy to see how each purse, tote, wallet and clutch is truly a one of a kind.
