Before starting, we create a pattern on cardboard sheets. This will enable us to visualize our future product and decide of our personal design. We add 1cm to each side of our pattern if the creation need inseams.
Once the basic pattern is made, we move on to cut the leather pieces (already dyed or natural skin). At this point, with a knife and a metal ruler, concision is required in order to minimize the waste and obtain a clean cut.
There are colors for surface and colors for the mass. We use dyes to color the full mass of leather. The result is much more natural and clean. Also, we use to finish our creation with small ethnics accessories: Kaula touch !
Once the leather has been shaped, we move on to stitching the pieces together. This is an important step in creating the final product as it holds the pieces in place and provides structure. We use a leather needle and waxed thread to hand-stitch the leather, following the lines traced on the leather from the pattern.
Embossing and Finishing
Finally, we add the final touches to the creation. This can include embossing a design or logo onto the leather, attaching hardware such as snaps or buckles, and applying a protective coating. At Kaula, we also like to add a personal touch by using ethnic accessories to finish our creations.
