The Satchels, Part 1

August 9, 2010

'The Loriner'

This satchel was one of the first in the series that focused on classical shapes and work bags from the early 20th century. It differs slightly in design in that it has softer curvier lines rather than the box-like feel of other satchels I’ve made. It’s made from Italian Double-shoulder veg tanned cowhide, 3.2 mm thick in Tan colour. It’s tanned and finished to be used as a belt leather but it’s wonderful as a bag leather as it softens relatively quickly compared to other waxy and heavily curried saddle and bridle leathers. More details are below.
