Recently a “friend” of mine Simon Tuntelder, opened a webshop with some products he crafted out of leather but also deadstock items he gathered. I wrote “friend” and not friend, be-cause I failed to meet Simon personally yet. We are in close contact since more than a year. First via following the others blog and then having discussions about vintage stuff and craftsmanship and quality products. I call him a “friend” knowing by heart that he is one of the good guys with the right attitude and for sure a good guy to talk to.

I´m far to be in the league with Simon when it comes to working with leather. He got a great knowledge when it comes to treat/restore leather and also to craft items for himself, friends or now for you. Do me a favor and check his new website and shop to have a look at his products he crafted. Not to forget to also point you to his blog where he shares his findings and knowledge.

Brooks leather saddles @ Copenhagen:
Brooks leather bicycle saddles
are an investment for a lifetime. They will mold to the owners shape and are nearly indestructible, that is what makes them so popular. If you see them on a bike, they tell you that it´s owner got style and understood their true value . So I was really fascinated to see that in Copenhagen they were such a common view. With so many cycling “Freaks” in this city with a natural sense for good design and well made products, it made total sense.

I was drawn more and more to take images from the various types I saw on the streets. Their different colors, leather structure and worn patterns. Some people were really puzzled to figure out what image I took with my camera. See the result of just some of the images I took above, probably I will make a large printout as a collage.

Just found a great site devoted to the Copenhagen bicycle culture -> Copenhagenize
