Buttero handbag new design

Recommended Posts

I Everyone

I recently tried out a new design for a handbag, I had previously made a more basic design for my petanque boules which was made out of Indian Buffalo hide , it was cheap and nice and strong, so decided to make a higher grade version utilizing my wet formed end pattern and some Buttero vegetable tanned cow hide from Tuscany which is one of my favorite leathers to work with due to it's fantastic quality.  This was a commission for a customer here in New Zealand who now owns a very unique handbag.

My first thought was, "Ooh!  I like it!"  Excellent work.  Few more pics of the ends and the strap and handle designs?

Looks great to me, yes, the handle is pretty "hefty" but given that it carries petanque balls it needs a bit of strength. It's not meant to be a ladies handbag.

The white that people refer too is the sun reflecting off the highly burnished Buttero

beautiful work!!! my only thought was that the strap holding the handle on to the bag could have been put on under the flap with just loops showing, it would make less upward tension on the stitching so they wouldn't break or pull loose making it stronger plus a little cleaner on top.
