“So well is the work going,
that recently we expanded our
line to include belts and billfolds,
not to mention to:?bags in three

group is slowly building up a
supply of basic leather workers’
tools and skills. If we keep on a
few more years, we will l.uve
the ability to make almost any
hand-made leather product.”
