Today’s post is a collection of two videos from two very talented and well-respected English leatherworking companies. The first, from Equus Leather, is a perfect example of how deliberate, sustained attention and an eye for detail create a beautiful finished piece. Just notice the focus and precision that the artisan brings to skiiving, creasing and painting his edges. It’s a real joy to watch.
The second video is from a company called GDH Leather Courses and demonstrates equally as much in the way of fine precision, but in just one small piece of the leatherworking process: measuring and preparing your thread for sewing. To me, watching her serves as a reminder that every part of the construction process deserves equally as much care, planning and exactness as any other.
