Let me take you back... way, way, way back...Ten years ago.... I was in Ireland, doing things like this. Very classic leathergoods - some with a slight Celtic twist. Most of the leather was hand-dyed (and my hands were mostly dyed, too). I was also making tweed and Irish linen hats, and tweed bags.
Fifteen years ago... I was making lots of hats, and started to make quirky sculptural bags. When I chanced across a job-lot of snakeskin and mock-croc pvc I went on a bit of a dinosaur tangent......even "dinosaured" the footstools I was making. (I sold LOTS of these at the time... anyone reading this buy one..?).
Twenty years ago..... I was making chiffon cocktail dresses (..??!!).
