My 3 custom Longchamp/Louis Vuitton leather binders in production – the process

Petra very kindly photographed every step of the production process of my three custom Longchamp/Louis Vuitton leather standard size binders so that I could write about them and show the process for my readers and for other VDS customers.

I ordered the same design as my undyed leather binder, because that has worked really really well – so that is:

  • lots of horizontal credit card pockets front and back inside covers
  • ring protectors
  • 30mm rings
  • fly leaf
  • secretarial pockets front and back

AND this time – full length back pockets! The PERFECT binder!

I am a paying customer just like anyone else and I experienced, once again, the wonderful service and communication from Petra which makes the whole process even more special. And added bonus for me is that I have personally met everyone who has contributed to the production of the organizers.

And as for JP Frumau – the cutter – look at that colour coordinated outfit, that smile and most of all the twinkle in his eye!
