  1. Hello fellow leather crafters. My name is Firdaus Hilmy from Malaysia, so please excuse my poor English. I've been a member for nearly 2 years now but never post a topic before. I know there are few posts regarding to this topic but not quite answering my questions I'm about to ask. I want to make a long wallet like this Hermès MC2 Fleming wallet. The wallet slots are fully lined with leather. So, my question is what is the suitable thickness for each slots, the front and its lining? From your experience, what is the suitable leather for this wallet? Is goatskin suitable for this? Thank you in advance and sorry for asking too much questions. Really appreciate if you guys can help me with this.

    Hi tet and welcome! I'm a Malaysian too! I think you can buy groover and creaser and many other leather tools from www.megaleathershop.com They are located at Seri Kembangan if I'm not mistaken..
  3. If you refer to this video by Salvatore Ferragamo below, I think the handle for the briefcase they made lined with thick leather or some sort of rubber.. As for the watch strap, if you refer to the link below, the craftsman use leather for the lining.
