i could actually not hold back on reposting these leather glories seen over at teenangster (alison finds the best stuff.) they are by alya b. kazakevic aka a.b.k. custom leather craft. fuck! apologies for my swearing, but fuck. wow.
it’s almost effin 30 degrees celcius every day & i’m looking at flippen boots? i can’t really help it guys, can you believe some of this stuff… click on the pics if you want to buy. if you actually do want to buy, please don’t tell me. i’ll be jealous.
tennis hagan long strap bag – Hand made in Canada, cut from one continuous piece of waxed and edged latigo leather. Closure is a custom brass buckle designed by Tannis Hegan. Comes with a handmade cotton bag.
there was a point in my life where bags were to me what shoes are to some women – i usually couldn’t pass up buying one. but i’ve been using the same leather bag for the past 3 years (quality over quantity, eh?) and don’t really plan on trading it in until it falls apart at the seams. that being said, i’m pretty sure i could be swayed by valhalla brooklyn
i’m thinking about christmas already. sigh. my family has instituted a one gift per person R100 limit (to combat the “meltdown“). i told them R100 is almost impossible, so i’m shooting for under 200 bucks. anything handmade is great to me, and anything i can order online is even better. if i can walk to a shop – wonderful, but that kind of limits you geographically & since i’m out in “the sticks” (as some might say) i welcome e-commerce with open arms (i’m also lazy). PLUS i’d also like to inject some christmas cheer into the south african postal service (i have faith!) – herewith my south african friendly online shopping gift guide
