    Great work, wonderful style, I love the retro chic with the modern twist. I also used to have this kind of bag as a kid but in black, very bulky, and not nearly as stylish. And the color you chose is absolutely fabulous.

    יפה כ"כ! לקחת איזה קורס בעיצוב תיקים או עבודה עם עור?

      Thank you, and yes, i did, i took exactly this kind of course at Shenkar ( tow or three years ago ). If I’m not wrong, the name of the tutor was Eli Ben Hemo.
      ( If your interested in this kind of cours write to me and i’ll give a more detailed review .)

    It’s a great bag. I was also about to ask how you sewed this, because I know something like this (such thick, stiff leather) can’t be done on an ordinary machine, but you already answered that question.

      Thank you Lebec, and no, i bought it in a leather distribution shop in my city some years ago for a different project and had some left overs laying around waiting for the write bag to wake it up.

      Sure you can, it’s an industrial machine with a weel leg, made origenally for shose i think. it’s very old and does have some dificulties in the thick parts, but overall it works prety well.
