Bike saddlebags

Something different for today's entry.

Those are a comissioned and custom saddlebags. It was the first time we did something like that and as you can see our stuff is mainly based in heathenism by often. But we love new challenges so...

Making this saddlebags was a hard job because were made with the so called spanish sewing with leather tie, and spiral sewing in straps and front ornaments. Both are bigger than the usual, because aren't saddlebags actually, just wrappers for the real side fixed cases, therefore we must to match ourselves to the case's shape somehow and make it wide at the bottom.

Leather carving is so simple, because the customer's taste, we pay more attention in leather sewing and shaping rather than drawing. But... if you ask for a cow... we will do a cow for sure hehe...
