Watercolor 3 Terracotta
NOTE: 25% Price discount due to two minor nicks in the leather (see photos). This is my favorite piece in the series so I was especially sad to discover the imperfections. The cuts are very shallow and do not affect the structure of the bag. I can insert a leather patch behind the nicked areas as reinforcement, just in case.
This series has a dreamy quality, a watercolor look with striped concentric patterns reminiscent of growth rings on a tree (which was totally unintentional and is now all that I can see.)
Thin washes of color show every hand motion. Each piece is made with layers of translucent brush strokes.
I have used naked vegetable tanned leather which has some special qualities, including developing over time, a bit like a very slow polaroid photo (remember how they fade from white?). When new, leather is crisp, almost paper-like. With use it breaks in, softens and becomes darker in color. Veg tanned leather builds a beautiful earthy patina. As you use these bags they will develop more and more character, more layers, more depth.
Leather colors (liquid dyes) are permanent and they will not crack or peel or transfer.
Simple unlined leather shoulder bag. Natural veg tan leather strap, medium length, finished with double screws and an interior keyring.
13”w x 24" overall drop.
