Traveling to Japan to study with my leather craft teacher

Last year I traveled to Japan to learn how to make a ladies round zipper clutch. After three long weeks, my clutch was completed and I returned brimming with new leather craft knowledge. Below is a recent Alligator and French Goat zipper clutch:

My skills progressed so quickly in such a short amount of time, I decided to study in Japan for 3 weeks every year with my leather teacher. I am off to Japan again, and will be studying how to make an English style men’s briefcase. Goodbye USA!
