Description

This leather bag is made of the leather of the old couch of my parents!
I stripped the couch and took 8 kg leather home!

This bag was a Christmas present for my mother. For every family member i made something of the leater. But this bag was the best made gift!

The lining inside is red. The bag includes 2 zippers (pockets).
The woven detail is handmade by me.
The bag will close because of magnets (inside the lining).

      Hi! thank you! I had thought some time about the best sollution for the weaving. And it wasn’t difficult at all. You just need some great concentration! I love to do those kinds of techniques!

      :) that’s the kind of “work”/fun where it feels like meditating. When I create sth. with ceramic it feels the same way
