Much respect to tucchino originality in making that slip and his overall design sense.

Yeah, Kusaka-san (who lives all the way up in Sapporo) does some really nice custom (and also RTW) bags, esp. with bridle.
He posts his works on his FB album, so check them out.


although completely unrelated, I recently saw Valextra's new collection of briefcases/bags made from waterproof suede.....looked quite amazing (and expensive)

Very cool. I really like that bag pattern. Looks very, very similar to Swaine Adeney Brigg offerings, but who knows how far back that design goes. Absolutely gorgeous colour combination. Would love to see it in alligator...

Just finished this computer bag yesterday. Vegetable-tanned Sokoto Goatskin with a white lambskin lining. Saddle-stitched by hand.

I can't stand vendors that only favor Facebook albums. What if I don't want a damn, facebook?

I agree, it doesn't seem particularly customer-friendly.

However, it is possible to have Facebook albums set so that non-Facebook members can see them. Whether people actually do use those settings is another question entirely, of course.

On the other way around, Facebook is an ideal tool for (non-English speaking) Japanese vendors like Kusaka Koshi to connect with the outside world.

Kusaka-san also happens to have a homepage and a blog, though I doubt any non-Japanese would want to dig through them.

Other than all the straps which are riveted! Seems a shame to spoil the bag for another few inches of stitching given the maker has done a lovely job of stitching and making the rest! Perhaps Im just being obsessively anti rivet...

Thats a fair assessment from a fellow craftsman..... Perhaps it`s not something he really see as an issue, until maybe one of his clients requests him to have it done otherwise.....

Here is another Kusaka briefcase....a slightly different shoulder bag version in black bridle (and red irish linen thread)

Thanks mate! The natural grain is very nice...I thought it was a print the first time I saw it since it's unusually prominent for goatskin.

I see where you're coming from on this one, but in terms of integrity, I have no qualms here. The straps appear to be functionally unnecessary, as many bags of simpler design are made without straps. Stitching wouldn't have hurt though, seeing as both rivets or stitching wouldn't even be visible due to the way the ends of the straps cover up that area. The rivets are essentially just there to make sure the straps don't rotate around the case.
