How to sew leather products

Leather is a very durable and flexible material, making it perfect for products that need to be strong yet lightweight. It also has great resistance to wear and tear and is easy to maintain. This makes it the perfect material for crafting custom bags and purses, as well as jackets and other clothing items. To craft these items from scratch requires a lot of patience and skill, but once crafted they are sure to be long lasting and truly unique. Knowing how to sew leather allows you to create your own one-of-a-kind pieces of clothing and accessories that will last a lifetime and that you will treasure for years to come.

3 Differents methods to sew leather 

There are generally two methods of sewing leather, namely by hand and by machine. Both methods have their pros and cons which must be considered when choosing a technique to use when creating your own leather products.

 

Hand-stitching sewing method leather leather

Hand-stitching can be very tricky and requires a great deal of skill to master. In addition to being time-consuming, it is also quite labor-intensive as it involves creating one stitch at a time. This can be a frustrating process for those who are new to the art of sewing. However, for those who already have some experience with needle and thread, it can be a great way to create unique items, with the added benefit of being able to customize the design to suit your own personal style. It can also be a good way to start if you are still learning because it does not require any specialized equipment.

 

Machine-stitching sewing method leather

Machine-stitching is considerably easier and faster than hand-stitching, but it does require the use of specialized sewing machines . Because of this, it is generally more expensive to hire someone else to do the machine work for you than to do it yourself. In addition, it can be difficult to get the exact results you are looking for when using a machine. Using a regular household sewing machine can leave you with uneven seams or stitches that are too large or too small, which can be very frustrating for a craftsperson trying to make something that looks perfect.

 

The Florence Leather Market way

Italian craftsmanship is the perfect blend of tradition and modernity. By using traditional techniques to create modern styles, we are creating a demand for our products that is stronger and more sustainable than ever. At Florence Leather Market, we combine the best of both worlds by creating leather products that are skillfully made by hand but produced using modern machinery to ensure the highest quality standards in the industry.

Here are our 3 tips on how to choose the perfect backpack 

QUALITY

By nature, the backpack is subject to bumps and wear throughout its lifetime, whether it is your faithful daily travel companion, or for one dedicated to sports or holiday purposes. Despite this, it is understood that a backpack must last over time, even the cheap Nylon versions. For this reason, considering the frequent use of a backpack, why not spend a little more and buy one that will not only look good, but will also be a pleasure to carry? When it comes to quality and therefore durability, the first material that comes to mind is without a doubt LEATHER resistant and good-looking, which leaves a pleasant sensation both to the touch and to the smell that give it a real sense of superiority. Italy is famous for the craftsmanship of leather, the use of high quality materials combined with a unique style all over the world and these are the pillars on which Florence Leather Market bases the creation of its products.

 

FUNCTIONALITY

Backpacks are now available in all shapes and sizes and that is why, before making a hasty purchase, we recommend that you understand the use of the latter and consequently understand what its ideal dimensions will be. If you need a backpack for daily use to commute to work, or you’re thinking to buy a backpack to go to university, we must take into account the capacity necessary for any devices such as laptops, books and even the lunchbox. An example could be our “Unisex leather backpackcharacterized by its simplicity and versatility. If, alternatively, we are looking for a backpack to replace the handbag, we can opt for backpacks with a lower volume and focus on practicality of use. Some examples could be backpack Luminosa” and “Gabriele”. When making your size decision, it is also important to consider your height. If you are petite, a backpack that is too large may not be suitable for you. Also pay attention to comfort. If you are looking for a small and light backpack, thinner straps will be fine but, conversely, if you are going to use it to carry heavy things and for long periods, you may want to look for one with thicker straps.

 

STYLE

Choosing a backpack is always a personal decision influenced by your lifestyle and your needs but this does not mean that you should abandon good taste. Florence Leather Market brings with it the Italian style by creating backpacks, bags and accessories for every eventuality and occasion:

In short, there are choices in abundance…

bag storage

Where do I store my bags?

 

Let’s face it…arranging the many bags that each of us owns has become a difficult task!

Florence Leather Market has decided to give you some little advice to keep your beloved bags in order and always at hand for every look change. 

Let’s see some ideas…

WARDROBES and DRAWERS

Of course, the most immediate choice is definitely to check the closet and the actual space inside it.

Once you consider the space, the best location for our bags are definitely the square shelves or drawers to dedicate to them. 

Using this space all the bags will be at hand so you can choose the most suitable according to every outfit and mood of the day! If you have a lot of space you can also divide them into drawers according to the seasons or even colors, this will really help you!

ALWAYS AVAILABLE

Another alternative to consider is the use of hooks, suitable for hanging bags, stored behind doors or inside the doors of cabinets. 

Also in this way you will have all your bags always available so you can choose the most suitable every day.

There are also circular crutches on the market that can also be used as furniture because, despite the practical use for storing bags, there are some beautiful and design.  

As you may have guessed, following these little tips, you can always have the rooms in order, without bags scattered everywhere that bring a lot of chaos!

CLOTH WARDROBES or CONTAINERS

These options that we have seen together are all valid, but only if you have plenty of space available.

Instead, if for you, the available space is not enough, the best choice could be to opt for a fabric wardrobe to be placed in another room (as long as it is dry).

These wardrobes, often, are also equipped with bags that allow you to better organize the spaces inside. 

In this way, the bags will not be in contact with any other object and closing them in protective bags are also repaired from temperature changes.

A practical alternative can be to use rigid plastic boxes, where to store inside the bags and then place them on shelves or cabinets. 

This choice is definitely the least aesthetic and classy, but it is really very functional and practical.

In this article we have given you some alternative, applicable to multiple houses, on where to store your favorite bags!
