Follow me as I restore this old leather plumber’s or work bag.

I make leather products in my spare time, mostly bags, backpacks and small items like wallets and card-holders. I am still learning a ton every time I take on a new project and always appreciate feedback on my creations.
For the moment I don’t take orders as I like to spend too many hours getting the finished product as good as I can : this means that if I were to sell these bags, the selling price would be way more than the bags are worth due to the hours of work involved.

As always, do let me know what you think of this creation and this video. If you have any tips or comments about the techniques used, please let me know by dropping a comment below this video 🙂

    Leather just gets better with age. I really like how you reworked it! Leather is amazingly resilient, i bought an old, neglected leather bag, wiped it down with alcohol hand sanitiser to remove stains, scrubbed it with soap, almost gave up but through it in the washing machine as a last resort. After it dried, i used dubbin saddle cream to nourish and it's gorgeous, when i wear it, people always comment on how lovely it is! What are the dimensions of your bag?
