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.

Was that something about 3D leather projects? Perfect solution if you ask me ;)
