All products are carefully made by hand. From first sketch to carving the motif all the way to the finished piece. Stitching is done by hand as well, not using any machines. Like this I can make sure, that every little detail is perfect and done with the calm work of my hands, ending in longlasting items.
All designs are done by me, from first pattern to all ahnddrawn motifs (except some custom orders).
The development of a collection begins with countless sketches. As soon as I am satisfied with the motif, it will digitize the designs and, if necessary, have leather stamps made for them.
The patterns of my products are also digitized. All covers for notebooks, passports etc.are cut by hand. While accessories such as key chains etc. may be cut/hammered by using special leather punches.
Custom orders are also very welcome! Simply contact me by using the page YOUR DESIGN and I will create your personal design!
PS.: My kids love to be part of the action as you can see on the photo! 🙂
HOW THE DESIGNS ARE MADE…
Once the pattern is cut I use water to moisten the leather. The surface absorbs the water and can be worked on with special tools. First I will trace the design on the leather. With the help of a special knife I then cut line after line. All products of the collection ‘Lederblümchen’ are cut without tracing the motif, like this each piece is unique! Once the leather is dry, the motif stays in place and the leather can be painted. The color takes 3-4h to dry, after which I can apply the homemade leather finish using pressure and heat. Like this the surface and edges of the leather will be polished and protected.
HOW IT IS ASSEMBLED…
In the end the elastic or pressure studs etc. are added and turn a piece of leather into a useful accessory. If stitchin gis required I will punch the holes first and then use a saddle stitch to finish it. And this is how a long lasting and practical piece is made for you.
After that everything is carefully packed and starts the journey to you!
