The allure of leather is once again gaining ground as small labels and brands produce functional pieces reflective of our lifestyles. A clear antithesis to disposable culture, well-crafted leather goods can and should last for decades.
This book is a practical introduction to this ancient art form with 20 distinct projects to sink your awl into. From creating simple braids and key rings to belts, wallets, mobile phone cases and leather totes, one could literally outfit themselves from head to toe.
Covers all the basics from gluing and polishing to using the specialised tools and sewing by hand. As the son of one of Sweden's leading shoemakers, the author has a lifelong knowledge of working with leather and his knowledge and respect for the material shines through.
