  1. Hello from the Netherlands:-)

    Hi Leatherworkers, After posting my third forum I found it only decent to do a small introduction :-) Having had a major crash/ depression in life from working in IT I came back to do what I really, really love. (Have been a saddler). Now I'm a bag maker ( and are now also making custom belts, wallets, shoes, etc....) It's what really makes me happy and brought me to life again :-) I design and make my own collections, and am slowly gaining momentum... Love this forum! There are not many leatherworkers in the Netherlands out there, and now and then I get stuck with issues only other craftsmen know how to deal with! I just found out there is a notifications button, so I will be very sure I'm gonna be much more here :-) Have a great day! Frank Franc & Hanz | Bespoke and handmade bags & cases www.franc-hanz.com
  2. Duffel Bag Prototypes

    Love it :-) The pull up leather is the best one :-)
  3. my first Wallet

    Great leather, love the combination of white and black yarn, gives it something extra :-)
  4. I would call this perfection, not a thing I would change :-)
  5. In the process of making custom shoes I found out that my leather (vegetable natural tanned) painted with royal blue Fiebing's Pro Dye stains on the rubber sole, on my hands and on the white wax yarn. Anyone know what would be the preferred way to solve this problem? All help we be very much appreciated! Have a great day! Frank Franc & Hanz | Bespoke and handmade bags & cases www.franc-hanz.com
  6. Where to find pins with custom logo with a rivet back closure?

    Sorry for my late reply, I just found the notifications button :-) Thanks for the info Chris, very interesting, I will will be sure to contact them!
  7. Where to find a supplier of magnetic bracelet clasps with custom logo?

  8. Where to find pins with custom logo with a rivet back closure?

    Hey Brian! Thanks a lot for the info! I will be sure to look into it!!
  9. Where to find pins with custom logo with a rivet back closure?

    Maybe I wasn't clear.... we got our own brand, this pic was purely to show you what kind of hardware I am looking for, we want this kind of pin with our own logo. But thanks for the copyright lesson :-) Frank
  10. For a new line of bracelets I'm looking for magnetic bracelet clasps with our logo. I spend a lot of time finding a supplier in China, but unfortunately this seems like a never ending road leading nowhere... Anyone knows a supplier who can make this kind of hardware? Doesn't necessarily have to be our own design, some kind of standard clasp than can be customised might be just as interesting :-) All help we be very much appreciated! Have a great day!

  11. Im the process of creating logo bracelets but I'm having such a hard time finding the right hardware. I've tried a list of suppliers in China, but this takes so much time, and is leading nowhere :-( Anyone got suggestions where I can find a maker of custom pins like the pin in the photo? (Since I'm Dutch I'm not really sure if "pin" is the right name, but it took me a day to figure this out :-) I'm also looking for logo (magnetic) bracelet clasps, guess I have to post that in an other topic, but any tips will be more than welcome as well :-) All help we be very much appreciated!
