A clever way to send out a message to “knock off” producers. This shows what the a well made product involves. More about it on http://www.fastcodesign.com/3024933/watch-a-luxury-bag-designer-teach-pirates-how-to-knock-off-his-bags

A good friend of mine makes the best shoes.

Another one of those who make. Totally in the spirit of the design world, trendy and poetic: Some basic skills, clean work and a well done video showing the logo a couple of times and all nicely wrapped with a bla bla packaging. We need to encourage this new generation of leather crafters.

PS. just curious to see what he’ll do in 20 years from now ;)

This is a project where I read the message that even the useless is usefull. It is about all those parts that cet cut off and discarded before the tanning process. What if we could give a chance to those rejects in order to make some original leather projects? Here a proposal from the dutch designer Victoria Ledig
