Maxim Sharov is a Russian craftsman who makes bags of leather. Here we show how he usually does it.
He especially likes leather that looks old, shabby and vintage. He says it’s “alive”.
Firstly leather should be carefully painted.
Cutting out a pattern of a future bag.
Punching the leather for sewing.
A press is used to fix the straps on the bag
Polishing the edges of the leather
The hardest part – sewing itself
A buckle is getting a beautiful dark tint on the stove
