Process for leather creation & what you will learn during this workshop :
Before starting, we create a pattern on cardboard sheets. This will enable us to visualise our future product and decide of our personal design. We add 1cm to each side of our pattern if the creation needs inseams.
Once the basic pattern is made, we move on to cut the leather pieces (already dyed or natural skin). At this point, with a knife and a metal ruler, concision is required in order to minimize the waste and obtain a clean cut.
Sewing and fixing
Before sewing the large pieces, we need to fix the locking systems, decorations and pockets. We have a wide range of decorations and ornaments. this done we start sewing the various pieces together manually All it takes is a needle, a thread and patience.
We hammer leather to create embossed designs. By meeting the entire surface of the leather begin by wetting the leather with a sponge passed under cold water and wrung out. Then we can draw on the leather with a small knife. This knife is designed to draw neat and regular lines. We make incisions in the leather with the corner of the blade.
There are colours for surface and colours for the mass. We use dyes to colour the full mass of leather. The result is much more natural and clean. Also, we use to finish our creation with small ethnics accessories: personal touch !
Twist and stretch
It is sometimes necessary to form the leather to give it the desired shape. We need to moisten both sides of the leather under running cold water and let it sit until the water has drained from the skin.
To shape the angles we can use a wooden spatula (metallic objects can leave scar on the leather). We let the leather dry but we have to be careful of the hot Indonesian sun which accelerate the drying and can make the leather harden.
