In our Facebook group, Leathercrafting with Giardini, we’ve asked the members: “What is leathercrafting for you?”, some answers were predictable: It’s a hobby, It’s my work, it’s an art...but some of them amazed us.
We want to share with you some of them to spread love and passions towards leather crafting:
“An experience like no other. After woodworking for 20+ years, decided to try leather and have fallen in love from the first stitch. I love the feel, smell and the finished product leave me very proud! Have lots to learn and am willing to commit!”
“It takes me into a world of possibilities. Every piece is different and presents unique challenges during its manufacture. I loose track of time when working with leather, my friends tell me I should find ways of making stuff quicker... why?”
“It is a way to add vitality to my cosplay projects. The use of leather enhances the overall statement I am trying to make.”
“It’s a creative experience, a utilitarian craft, a masterful use of hands and tools, and a sensual experience with the texture, feel, smell and touch of leather in all its shapes and forms and colours."
“Leather crafting for me is constantly evolving, the medium of leather enables amazing possibilities! the investment I have laid out in tools and education is now reflected in my products, this has become more than a commercial venture its my passion
