The aim with this project was to get a wider experience working with leather. I started out by systematically testing out the effects of different fluids, heat and pressure on thick, vegetable tanned leather.

Due to the properties of leather, I found out that a suitcase could be an interesting product to make. As leather has the great possibility of being pretty stiff but still very shapable and flexible, I saw the possibility of including a lot of functionality, using the leather in different ways.

Thanks to Sørensen Leather for sponsoring me with beautiful leather.

Duration: 6 weeks, The Kolding school of Design, Denmark 2014
