Leather Roses Video

I finally posted our first video. It was taken last September when we met Gianni and he described how he got his inspiration for making his line of leather roses. The leather roses are very nice and unique and I look forward to hearing feedback from customers.

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!
