This large weekend bag is in shape and construction based on a gladstone bag, however I have omitted the heavy top frame. Instead I have opted for a belted, hasp and staple closure modelled on an old fashioned flight case. It also sports two strong multi layered handles which allow it to be carried over the shoulder or in the hand.
Entirely hand stitched cut and burnished like all of my work, this bag is particularly tricky and time consuming in part due to its large size. It is made from a vegetable tanned Italian hide shoulder which has been beautifully fatted all the way through, In the areas where the leather as stretched or curved the fats and oils disperse creating a subtle variation in tone.
All brassware is cast in the UK it is finished with a hand sewn waxed cotton lining.
