We have been busy in the studio designing and making while the temps get up in the 90’s, thinking of how cold for how long the winter will be.
On my bucket list has been to do an easy vest, one to just throw on and let it flow, or to tighten it up with your favorite belt as I did here in a quick shot on the mannequin
So far we have done a handful of one-of-a-kinds, and we would love to have you come try one on, and give us feedback!
Done in a supple napa finish Spanish Merino Shearling with lambskin trim
We are proud to be exhibiting at two shows early in our season with others who are the best in our medium, and that give a fair representation of the best in the field.
One of the oldest materials used by man, humans have been manipulating leather since prehistoric times to to clothe us, to carry things, as ornamental items, to keep our pants up, aide in our sexual fantasies, tether our animals, and so much more.
Most of us in this field are self taught, as there are very few educational opportunities available.
We are a small group, it is a laborious medium that mistakes cannot be made in, due to the nature of working in skins made one at a time, and most of us who have survived have been perfecting our craft for a very long time, some as custom sandal makers during the Woodstock era. There are no leather guilds or prizes to keep us going,
so Kudos to the shows that jury in the best in the medium of Leather!
