Here is another grainy, pebbly beauty

 

The items above are made by Aixa Sobin of LusciousLeather NYC on Etsy. She made my custom composition book cover (below). Her service and communication is fantastic and she does everything by hand. My transaction with her was one of my best ever!

Every leather bag, briefcase, messenger, weekender, totes and journals is made completely by hand without machines glues or lining. I have a studio where I sew each piece by hand. I hand cut and hand punch and hand stitch everything. And I mean everything. Stitching one stitch at a time, with no shortcuts.

Our philosophy is to sew everything twice and when necessary use double thread. So most of our products have four threads in each hole. I do that because I believe in making something well and durable, because what you make speaks for you and who you are. And what stays behind is your art and your craft and that’s what people will remember.

And most importantly it feels good to make something well. When you buy an item from us you are guaranteed quality, durability, uniqueness and care. Our bags also have a small carbon foot print so they do not further damage the environment. We recycle leather, use farm leather when we can, re-purpose as much as possible, use no machines to punch or cut or sew. All done with human hands.

We also use no patterns guaranteeing a truly one of a kind piece every single time.
We make what we design and we design what we make. If any item you buy from us has any issue with it due to wear and tear we will repair it for free forever no questions asked.

  1. How do you unsubscribe to Janet Carr emails. I tried via your link and the Yalta agreement would be IMO less complicated. I can’t remember my password is there any way you can help. The emails by Janet car are far too many and for all intents and purposes trash my email account.
