One of my colleagues was using this nice leather bag, but the handles (as you can see on the picture) where almost fully torn apart. In my enthusiasm I offered to create new handles for this bag to give it a second life. I am not typically inspired by repair work, but I hate it when things are put aside or replaced when with a small action they can stay functional.
The challenge of a good repair I find in having the right materials to make a good match with the current item. I was lucky to have a piece of leather on stock that could have been from the same piece of leather the bag was made of. 🙂 The handles are now made of 3 layers of leather glued and stiched together. The edges are treated with Fiebings Edge Kote.
Imagine, Create & Enjoy
