This is a make some time back, probably about 2 months now. Haven’t had the time to update.
This was an order from somebody based in the US, but was originally from Singapore. What a coincidence and a good way to save on shipping! No need for me to send it across the seas and hope that it doesn’t get lost in transition. It was quite a complicated project as I had no idea how big her handle bars were, and the girth of it. So I had to do it based on perception, and as Singaporeans would say, agaration.
So here’s a snippet of the build process.
I like to wet my leather before dyeing. I think it just picks and spreads the colour nicer.
My go to die. Fiebing’s leather die. Alcohol base, but dyes so sweet.
It is a round edge bag, so I had to make an oval kind of shape. Here’s after it has been skived down.
For the buckles.
Putting it in place and marking using a silver pen. Easily removable and doesn’t leave a mark like scratching does.
So, if you’re interested in getting something custom hand made, feel free to contact us, and we’ll be glad to answer you for at least 2 days, before we get back to you.
