“Leather Workshop”

Leatherwork crafts

The craftsman was interested in leather and its products in 2006. By touching a leather belt-bag for the first time, he did not even think he would ever make such things. He did not believe that only an awl, a needle, thread and hands are needed for sewing such things. He tried and it was successful. The craftsman began experimenting with leather embroidery, learning how to make scraps, counting and working correctly with this amazing material. With the help of the good people, through books, he has tried to feel the subtleties of this exciting craft, to understand how to work each item correctly, so that it is worth showing to the people and does not bring shame to its creator.
