Leather Roses Video

Yesterday I talked about how hard it was for me to do something as simple as editing and posting a video. Today I was able to complete my project, although I think that I will have to go back and polish things up a bit.

In the video, Gianni describes how he got his inspiration for his line of leather roses. He found out about a technique the Venetians used to make leather masks for use in theater productions and decided to apply it to mold leather. This technique gives leather a permanent shape which is ideal for creating custom shapes. I did not know that by immersing leather in alcohol and drying it the leather will retain the shape you give to it.

I think that Gianni leather roses are really unique and cute and am proud to be introducing them to the American market. I am curious to hear what customers will think: if you have an opinion, please comment below!
