I was a little intimidated to venture into this territory, but I am quite satisfied with the result. The sentimental value of the material I used, probably has something to do with the cool factor of the product. A couple years back my Aunt asked me if I wanted this giant US mail bag that she found... I took it with little intention of being able to make something of it. I really enjoyed the process of making this bag. Dyeing the leather strapping was quite satisfying. I'm not sure how I am going to maintain the uniqueness of the material in further creations.
