Red + Tan + White Yukihiro Logo

Here is a little vid we made of the Yukihiro logo being hand embroidered in to the custom tote for a lovely customer in Australia... This is the same tote as in the Red + Tan post but I wanted to post it separately so it didn't get lost... Hope you enjoy!

Big thank you to Nathan Berry at BERRY for capturing editing and compiling this really cool vid!

Red + Tan Start to Finish

The beginnings of a new bag with the spoils of last weeks shopping trip to the leather shop... As this is a piece for a customer I thought I'd share the step by step hand stitching process...
This bag is a variation of the red bag in the shop... but as this bag isn't in stock we are giving it a little colour tweak!

I will ad photos as the construction continues over the next few weeks so stay tuned!

I hope you enjoy seeing it come together....
