This week’s Customer Creations post includes a variety of bags designed with every purpose in mind. Whether it’s a bag for your everyday carry, or you’re off to the office with a stack of paperwork, or you’re packing for a long weekend or extended vacation, these bags designed and constructed by our readers will have you covered. Included are some lovely cowhide travel bags, a couple of leather briefcases, a bag with some beautiful hand-tooling, and a calf leather handbag with an alligator pouch.
I love seeing leather craftsmen make briefcases. Personally carrying one is not something that would work with my lifestyle. Knowing how difficult it is and how much planning goes into one, I’m always in awe when I see a hardshell briefcase.
Thank you for inspiration!
Thanks for reading and for taking the time to respond, Misha! And I whole-heartedly agree – one of the more subtle benefits of being a leatherworker is your newfound appreciation for fine leather goods and all of the detail and attention that goes into them. There is a whole new level of appreciation.
