One of the ways that we keep up with what’s going on in leather goods design is through Pinterest. Over the years we’ve accumulated more than 13,000 pins ranging from the bespoke luggage of “Out of Africa” author Karen Blixen to infographics on the anatomy of a Birken Bag (both below).
Inspiration for your next project can come from anywhere and it’s good to keep your eye out for not only what’s new in design but also the rich past of leather goods.
The bespoke luggage of “Out of Africa” author Karen Blixen. Amazing attention to detail and customization for each and every item that goes into this case. Note: the link below says Dutch author Karen Blixen. She is Danish.
Shoes are an often-overlooked source of inspiration for would-be fine leather goods makers. They have a practical requirement of being wearable (although some women would disagree) and despite this requirement shoes have huge range of form and style.
