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....
