It's all a handmade apron. Drawing, cutting, sewing is manual work.All my articles are singular, I do not make more than one piece. All the elements are different from each other. All items have leather scars, scratches and physical imperfections that are usually found in natural leathers. I treat it as a natural thing since all leathers came from simple animals and should not be considered a defect. The materials used are the natural color veg sheep's leather. After tanning, it was finished hand dyeing, and wet ground to inflate the natural grain. The shape of the apron is the original leather shape, and it was trimmed before the tanning process. All leathers are industry releases, development prototypes, or remnants of orders and therefore its destiny was to be thrown away like garbage sooner or later.
Mainly destination for shoe manufacturer companies, the leathers I use are mostly chrome tanned, but in some cases also use tanning veg. The Portuguese has a large tanning industry and these kind of leathers are easy to find, so I try to reuse this material.
Also, I'm a tanner so all the leathers I use were made in my tannery and all have a history. I am able to remember how, when and the purpose of its development.
By making these items, I jump to recycle some of what I and the rest of the world rejects as waste. This item is made of leather.
