No shortcuts

Dulcinea evening bag by Miyamoto

 

Here is a mock-up before the prototype of Dulcinea’s alligator envelope. The mock-up is still a thing of beauty, done in box calf of a quality rarely seen, hand cut and hand sewn with linen thread. The edges are properly and carefully finished: sanded, waxed and coloured.

All steps have been taken as if this is the final product.

Perhaps this behaviour might be seen as obsessive compulsive, but we see it merely as doing it properly.
