A very good friend of ours told us about this very first collection of two Italian artists who have joined their creative spirits under the name C.A.2 Creative . The collection features huge stoles, gloves, foulards and small accessories and is inspired by ancient Chinese paper-cut artworks. Automatic Cutting Systems (Blade, laser or water-jet cutting) may have been used for the engravings.

Today, we want to show you some types of stitching that are commonly used in the manufacturing of leather goods. As you will see from the pictures below, we have made a leather bag on which we have tried to apply different ways of assembling the different parts and also we have tried to use different types of visible and hidden stitching.

Which one is your favourite?

In an extraordinarily competitive environment, we in the leather goods manufacturing industry are facing the dilemma of how to compete while maintaining the integrity of our businesses. Will the price of our products and services affect the value provided? The answer is… No. On the other hand, quality is presupposed and already assumed by the buyers that want to have the “Made in Spain” embossed on their leather products. Let’s have a deeper look at the concept of “Value”.

The images  below try to reflect the words and concepts associated to words such as “Quality”, “Price” and “Value”. According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary  “Value” is defined as worth of importance; the adequate or satisfactory return on or recompense for something. Things have value, or are of value, or are valued. “Price” is defined as cost of something bought or sold. However, things that have a price may or may not have Value.

Providing value, or even better, added value for the price that, obviously, our buyers have to pay for our products (or services), is the best position for a business that want to compete globally.

How do you add/provide value to your products and services? At what extent is price so important in a high quality leather product?

High quality leather goods are immediately recognised at first sight, don’t you think? A very good example of this is the limited edition Laptop Bag co-created by Travelteq and Tenue de Nimes. Both universes are very well combined in such a stunning product. Below you can watch a short video of the manufacturing process of this product… It’s worth watching. Enjoy!!

We have always been interested in designers who look for something different and want to experiment with materials. This time, we want to tell you about this “Duramen Series” since it is a new approach to the field of wood. We really enjoy projects like this because it brings together ideas and concepts such as creativity, craftsmanship and art. The wooden forms are carved, sanded and finished by hand by French design duo Rémy Clémente and Morgan Maccari of Bonsoir Paris
