White Leather Purse

The weather has gotten so hot that while I was designing this bag I thought of words like “cool” “fresh” “icy” and I kept all these words in my head while I was making it. I wanted it to be a small/casual bag for summer time. The chains are actually aluminum covered in oxidized silver so they are not heavy at all. The bag was made with lambskin leather and is completely handmade except for the zipper and the plastic lining.

The lining. I used plastic lining for the bag (completely transparent) so that the little triangular cutouts would not be compensated. I tried nude tulle lining at first and it totally killed the look of the bag.

I used this rivet machine alot. This machine was crucial to the production of this bag.
