Just as I promised, we are checking back in with a few photos of how this bag finished up the afternoon. As you can see Renza finished with the lining, and moved on to put the front and back panels together. Anyone who sews, knows how difficult it can be to keep the edges matched up and to make sure the seams meet straight on – so in order to help our seamstress we use a potent glue that not only helps the sewing to go smoothly but adds strength to the seams making it a study bag.
Once the seams have been sewn together the bag is passed over to Renato who smooths down the edges and the paints them with a terracotta color to add “personality to the bag” but more importantly to help protect the leather from absorbing too much humidity, keeping it safe from the elements. In the meantime Renza has prepared the handles, and as soon as the Italian leather handbag and paint are drive she will put them together.
