In this video we are exploring some of the differences between how leather items are mass produced or made in volume and how custom leather items are made.

This is to try and show people that custom leather items require much more time and care and how people working on their own can not always benefit from the time and labour saving machinery and methods that are available to big factories!

This video represents my own views only and of course makes lots of general observations aimed at no company in particular, not all large companies do things the same way.

The few seconds of video of industrial processes and the few old photographs were included for educational purposes only under fair use guidelines.


This video has been re-uploaded with some or all of the audio removed to avoid problems with dishonest companies making unfounded copyright claims.
