This week I got a visit at my workshop from the Photographer Mia Feline – Goldenfox. She spent a day with me and Tillmann to capture me working (an Tillmann waiting to finally going to play Frisbee) on various products eg. a Clutch Bag, a Tote Bag, a Belt and a leather covered Flask. Im very happy with the results and for sure this will not be the last time we work with Mia and Goldenfox.
It all started by borrowing my flask to friends who went on a hiking trip without a good spirit – I could not join them this time, but gave them my well filled flask. (Which I still haven´t got back!)
In the need to get a replacement quick, I did some research, but could not find anything really appealing to me. So I had the Idea to cover a standard stainless steel flask with some of my veg. tanned leather. I customize them with the initials and sew them by hand, orders can be placed, but I got already a lot to craft before christmas.
Feinschmuck Lindauer Belt – used, mine vs. Maria´s:
Today I saw Maria´s Feinschmuck Lindauer belt and somehow her leather showed a lot more wear and a nicer color. Can it be that she has worn it more often?
The angle of the camera might cheat a bit. The lower belt is 3 cm while the upper one is 4 cm (the leather). The upper buckle 0,5 cm wider (4,5 cm) but 0,1 cm (8,2 cm) shorter.
