About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

In my crafts, I infuse my knowledge of engineering in an inexact science like leather to create simple but very user-friendly and functional designs which are made to last a long time. I put a great deal of effort in executing the details in creating the workpieces, such as: a) the "12:00-to-6:00" saddle stitching wherein I use polyester thread and a four times undersized needle for strength and durability; b) the "almost at the edge" binding for a sharp and clean look; c) the inside leather lining that is fused to the main leather material; d) for the handwoven, the old and traditional way (from bottom to top) of handweaving for a seamless finish and the hand-cutting, edge-thinning, edge-dyeing, and folding of every single strip for a tightly close and squared weave; and e) the hand-finishing which may be tedious but brings out the natural patina of leather.
