Bucket Bag “Gloria” cognac veg. tanned leather

Quite for some month I´ve been designing and redesigning this bucket bag in my head. Last week I finally hand sew the “Gloria” for my sister Gloria after we discussed her requirements. A magazine (about DIN A4) should definitely fit in and I extended the size even a bit to store a 13 inch Macbook inside. A bespoke leatherpatch with one of her favorite slogans “no guts no glory” makes the bag even more unique. The bag is still at my leather workshop but it will get handed over to her tomorrow. The bag was completely sewn by hand and saddle stitched with two needles so it´s really handmade (not “handmade” by operating a sewing machine with the hands). The Leather is probably the most eco friendly certified leather you can buy in Germany/Europe. The tannery is located in the south of Germany and the hides are from cows from the alpine region close by as well. For me it´s an important thing to support the local tanneries and craftsmen as i hope my clients do as well. The size of the bag is approx. 35 x 25 x 15 cm.

Natural Indigo Scarfs by Indigo People

Probably the first time I came saw the first natural indigo dyed scarf was at “The Low Show” in Amsterdam about half a year ago. Since then I regretted to not have been able to obtain one. By luck I found Kiat from Indigopeople and his natural indigo dyed scarfs. I contacted him and he was kind enough to sent me the Otobe and the Abira scarf be-cause i was not really sure which one I like more. Honestly I still don´t know. Both are really nice masterpieces with a “basic” traditional ikat pattern made by a master artisan. While the Otobe is a much bigger an thicker scarf, the Abira is of a thinner material. So actually both have a bit of their “advantages” regarding the style you plan to wear them or the season. I will probably have a bit of a hard time to decide which one will be my favorite one. Thanks Kiat for the great and quick service and I´m really looking forward how the scarf will look like, after it´s worn for a while to develop it´s unique look.

The idea to craft a dog collar for Tillmann with my mobile number on it was born be-cause he kept loosing the “id bombs” or making writings on the inside disappear caused by his rugged lifestyle. And the reason for an ID was also necessary by the fact that the call of nature and smells made him disappear from time to time. Once the “Jagdtrieb” / “hunting instincts” get hold of him it´s unlikely that he realize a command.

So within a very short period I was asked by friends to handmade at least half a dozen dog collars, with names on them and sometimes for the more active dogs with a phone number to call. Just make sure the dog collar does not outperform your own belt by quality and style.

Just after I came back from refilling my milk bottle from the local farmer I finally received the parcel I´ve been waiting for some days. Uwe did spent the last sunday, to craft this great wallet for me, 8 hours of hard work. Handcutting the leather pieces, burnishing the edges, punching holes with the awl and sewing it together with saddle stitches. Not too much space for mistakes. Im overwhelmed by the quality of the wallet and the Schachenmayr leather. 1000 DANK, thanks a lot Uwe.

U. Tauber – handsewn Indian Head nickel wallet

Last week I got a parcel by U. Tauber with some great hand crafted leather items he made. One is the small Indian Head / Buffalo nickel wallet. All hand sewn, made out of leather he just got from the Schachenmeyer Tannery (which sadly closes down soon). Perfectly crafted, and I hope I can learn at least a bit of his skills soon.
