Mammon Handcrafted Leather workshop

(posting from July 15-16th 2014)

Etienne and I visited Mammon Handcrafted Leather– a handmade leather workshop studio/café in downtown Hanoi. Our friends Kelsey & Emily had gone earlier that month and had made some beautiful leather items.

Etienne & I spent 5 hours our first day designing, cutting, hole punching & sewing our leather goods. We returned the following morning to continue for a few more hours.  A wallet for Etienne & a leather clutch/case for me. With very sore bums, wrists and fingers, we certainly have a new found respect for leatherwork.
