What shall a leather sale shop offer?

When making a DIY Bag using the leather, the basic rule is to start from the various types that can be produced: for women, for men, briefcases and professional ones. The customer must be satisfied, this is an important rule. The DIY bags produced can be of various types, for women, for men, briefcases and professional ones. Inevitably, every type of bag needs a different kind of leather. At the same time, every type of bag can be produced with many different types of leather.

Rigid briefcases for example, can be produced with calf leather, half sides and whole skins usually chrome tanned, or vegetable tanned hides, finally shoulders or fronts can be used. The production of professional rigid briefcases is in any case optimized using big size pieces or skins.

What to look for in making women bags?

Bags are for sure part of the broadest and most varied universe, the possibilities are almost endless. In case of bags mixed with fabric, can be arranged matching with chrome half sides or with vegetable hips or shoulders. To produce bags for walk or shoppers, based on different styles could be used young calves, half calves, calves or breeches, chrome tanned or with mixed tanning and vegetable re-tanning, or even vegetable half calves, shoulders, fronts, bellies or breeches, drummed with a greased soft appearance and a much longer durability in time.

For men bags, what leather shall I use?

Men bags are usually a bit more "rigid" than women bags, and this stiffness often derives from the type of material used: half calves or chrome calves with vegetable re-tanning of 1,2 / 1,4 mm width, or vegetable hips, shoulders, fronts and breeches always of 1,2 / 1,4 mm of thickness are a must. Vegetable leather are recommended especially for men bags because of their elasticity and waterproofing, for their resistance to scratches and abrasions and for their appearance definitively more mannish, masculine and lived compared to chrome tanned leather.
