J.Renard.Leather

This is the first time I’ve combine two projects in one video. I was attempting sheathes, but wrapped in exotic hides in the style I learned from John fong. I didn’t see the point of making two video of basically the same. These sheathes were made of Horween horse butt and wrapped with Cape Buffalo and Alligator tail respectively. I had to use a drill to make the holes in the scabbard, as I don’t have chisels long enough. It actually made it MUCH easier to stitch these areas.

I’m surprisingly less busy than I thought I’d be for this Valentine’s Day. This was the first of the V-Day orders that I filled. It’s a 38mm Apple Watch band ⌚️. It’s made from a burgundy Elephant Ear leather with a wine-colored liner underneath, and stitched with Rita (Tiger) Thread.

I hope you enjoy this video. Feel free to Like, Comment, and Subscribe.

I've been a fan of Stock & Barrel's YouTube channel for good while now. Once they put a few patterns for sale, I had to give one of them a go. I used Cowhide with Cape Buffalo accents.

I also tried my hand at a more thorough skiving effort. I gotta say: it was quite worth it. i may get a better skiving knife so as to make a better and faster job of it the next go 'round.

As always, enjoy the video, and feel free to Like, Comment, and Subscribe, as it really helps the channel grow.

I was told about an art/cultural showing in Osaka, and I told the coordinator about what I had to offer. They accepted, and I brainstormed about what to send in. I decided to send in several of my already completed exotic leather projects, but I wanted to add a new piece as well. The following video is the construction of that project, minus the adding of the interior lining. That decision was borne of insomnia, but turned out well.

I decided to spend some of my off-time with leatherworker-extraordinaire, John Fong. He’s got nearly 50 years of skill and expertise in the custom leatherworking industry. He offered to show me some methods to improve my technique and speed on some of the items that I haven’t made any/much of. In this video, he is showing me the process that he goes through to make alligator skin belts. The information and the experience was invaluable. I’m so thankful that John took time out of his day to show a young rookie the ropes. His contact info is below

this project is a watchmen made out of vegetable tanned cowhide. It was done on a whim, primarily because I wanted to replace my own Apple Watch band. I had initially decided to not stitch the sides, due to the strengths of barge glue. However I decided that the watchmen would be better off being reinforced by the stitching. Since the stitching was spur of the moment, I didn’t have the camera set up. As such it was not filmed.

This is the second Louis Vuitton UpCycle project. I decided to go with a standard bifold but with some custom tooling on the inside. I kept it low-key by just using cowhide, darkened with neatsfoot oil. I used a complimentary colored Havanna brown thread from Ritza. Please feel free to Like, Comment, and Subscribe.

I’ve never done a bookmark before, so when I was asked to create one for a client, I was quite intrigued by the project. They gave me the artwork that they wanted for it and I began it immediately, and I saw that I underestimated what would be involved with it. I thought that it would be quite easy to construct, and that it would honestly be a smooth project. However I found that a large constraint on the project was the size of the project, the artwork therein, and the design elements of said project. I actually had to use more effort and resources that I had initially intended when I begin this project. I’m actually quite glad with how much I learned and how well the project turned out giving it sized and my initial approach to it.

This here is a Louis Vuitton project. I used a 25+ year-old LV bag to create a 6-pocket, vertical wallet and a keychain. both are handmade, and saddle-stitched. no machines were used to create this project. #HandsNotMachines.

I got a request via IG for one of these, and I have to say, I cou;dn't have been happier to do it. I LOVE working with Ostrich Leather. Enjoy the video, and please feel free to Like, Comment, and Subscribe.

This project is going to be a medium-sized bag with a Harley Quinn theme. I'm still on the fence about the back. I know I should plan this out better...but where's the fun in that? :-)

This particular project was made from elephant trunk, and veg tan cowhide.

The front cover is Elephant trunk leather, lined with veg ten cowhide. The rear cover is made a veg tan is made of a particularly thick piece, about eight or 9 ounces. I did so to add some sturdiness to the peace and give the project a bit more better protection for the eyeglasses while they were in the case. I also tooled the inside of the cover because I felt as if the piece of elephant leather itself was not sturdy enough, and I just could NOT leave so much wide open unused space on anything i made for myself.

The pattern was designed by the owner of YouTube channel niteKore. The artwork is by a woman name Camy, and her work can be viewed via her Instagram account, @LovEroticArt. All music is copyright-free, and available from either YouTube, or bensound.com

This bag is made of tan Horween American Buffalo (Bison), and black Ostrich leather on the Fleur de Lis and the side pockets. The bag was designed by Tony See, (YT: NiteKore).The body of the bag is reinforced with VegTan cowhide in order to keep the rounded shape of the bag. It was quite tedious, but well worth the work. The client was quite pleased as well.

Ahh, the infamous bag in question that I asked for you all's help with improving. The bag is made, primarily, from the tail of an American Alligator, ethically sourced, tanned, and dyed in the United States. The front, gusset, and strap are all chrome-tanned Horween leather from Maverick Leather in Bend, OR.

I just wanted to post the construction video of that project. I didn't realize my battery had died while I was stitching the front panel to the gussets, but I got everything charged and good-to-go for the almost all of the rest of the project. Please enjoy the video. By all means feel free to Like, Comment, and Subscribe.

This bag was designed by the YouTube creator known as niteKore. It's inspired by the acoustic ports of a violin. The entire project, minus the tooled Vegtan pocket on the inside, is made of Horween leather. It feels OUTSTANDING! Horween products are a bit pricey, but I believe they are worth the price if you have the patience to make quality products.

A Dive Instructor asked me for something to replace his own wallet, and he carries a few more cards than average. He put his trust in me regarding the style and material.
