Summary

Since the introduction of man-made materials the use of hand-worked leather has declined, but the art and craft of leatherwork is still popular and designs can easily be produced at home in a wide range of shades and finishes. This practical book offers several projects aimed at all levels of skill, including a child's sheepskin hat and vest, suede cushion covers, slippers, a personal organizer, a useful blanket carrier, a briefcase and a pair of sandals. An introduction to the basic techniques also outlines details of the essential materials and special tools and equipment that you will need, as well as ways of dyeing and finishing natural leather. Clear photographs of the finished projects will inspire you to try some of them out for yourself. A gallery of antique and contemporary pieces highlights the versatility and beauty of leather, and its use for everyday objects and clothing - as well as for more ornate and decorative pieces.
