I really don‘t understand how my recent post has gotten 0 attention. I was super proud of finishing a bag this nicely. It‘s the first time I‘m almost entirely happy with the result. Anyways here is another project I have finished. It‘s one of my own designs. Currently these smartphone case bags seem to be a trend and I used some nice green croc to create one.

Here you can see my largest project yet, which I actually made for myself. It is inspired by the Louis Vuitton "Porte Documents Voyage" which is a briefcase. I will include a couple of "progress" pictures. It isn't a tutorial but will give some insight into what work goes into making a simple item like this. Of course it is all entirely hand stitched and no machines were used for anything. Therefore imperfections are inevitable. I also included a picture that shows what fits inside of it. A 13 inch macbook slides in just fine, and the Hermès Ulysse GM as well. I hope you enjoy!

I rarely visit the Showcase threads, maybe it's the same with a lot of other posters which could explain why there aren't more views. And most of us are here for our fave brands and stick around those threads.

Yeah totally, I‘m the same. But usually whenever i posted something new at least 1 person gave it a like as it appears on most recent threads or something. I thought maybe the algorithm just didn‘t work that day.

Oh that elephant is amazing! Did you find it more difficult to work with than your other exotic leathers?
It‘s so different, I love it too. It really isn‘t more difficult to work with. Theres gonna be scratches sometimes, and you have to be careful when splitting it down not to shave off too much, but after that it is so much more forgiving than any other leather I know. It doesn‘t scratch, it doesn‘t show creases, it can‘t get dull as it is already very matte. Can only recommend it!

Awesome! I had an elephant skin wallet that lasted me a decade. It never got scratched up or anything. It was one of the best pieces I've ever owned. When I saw your bag, I immediately remembered the wallet.
Your work is outstanding. Are you still gifting your creations to family and friends? I'll bet they're overjoyed, especially knowing how painstakingly you work on each piece.

I just come across you post, read through all 5 pages, love love love your craft. Before I had seen your post, I did not like any of the exotic bag, maybe because the sky high price tag is a turned off. But your detailed work in progress photos brought your work in a very 'personal' level. Your green croc and matt elephant skin bags are my favorite. Keep creating, thank you for sharing!
