Process, Prototypes, Initial Sketch


Hand-sewn leather backpack made from vegetable tanned leather sourced from Brazil. Sewn with waxed Irish linen thread.

This was my first attempt at making something out of leather.

Leather, thread, and tools were acquired through Craigslist from a heartwarmingly wise man named Bob who lived in a trailer park and was about to head off on a road trip throughout the United States.
