One of a kind wearable art and signed by the artist.
Almost completely hand created, with custom metal and leather work this mid-sized handbag took over 230 hours to complete.
Metal work featuring the blue sky is curved to make it look almost like a globe emerging from the centre of the bag. There is also a custom metal and leather key fob attached to the bag.
The bag is completely hand dyed, with 5 coats of water based dyed which was done over a series of 2 weeks, hand oiled over a period of 11 days to slowly soften the leather and then hand sealed with speciality wax.
This bag includes an interior pocket, zipper on top and comes with an adjustable strap.
We work mainly with vegetable tanned leather, which is also a by-product of the food industry, to create each of our pieces (books, masks, armour, corsets etc). Each piece made from vegetable tanned leather is meticulously hand carved, hand dyed, and hand finished. Some of these pieces are also hand painted with special leather paints and overlays. This ethically sourced tooling hide softens in over time for a beautiful old-world finish. The dyes used are an environmentally friendly water based dye which leaves a rich hand-finished touch on each piece bringing out the unique highlights, grains, and character of each piece of leather (and not considered as flaws). We use a variety of different, hand applied, finishes to both protect and emphasize the leathers natural beauty. Finishes may include, but are not limited to, any or all of the following depending on the piece: high quality oils, waxes, gums, and protective coats. Each component is hand buffed once the finishes have set to give it a resilient sheen.
Product Care: Please keep out of direct sunlight for extended periods of time, leather will slightly soften with use. Although finishing wax protects the leather please keep tote away from water, oils and perfumes. Item comes with care card.
