This project was designed for home sewists to dabble in leatherwork with the minimum possible tool purchases. Where possible, we have used tools you probably already have in your garment or quilt sewing kit. This may be different to the specialty tools recommended and used by professional leather-workers or serious hobbyists.
Supplies for your Breve Bag
In addition to some sewing supplies, we have a list of recommended leatherworking supplies over on the Breve Bag product listing. This has been kept to a minimum so that home sewists can dabble in leathermaking, without needing to buy a heap of expensive equipment.
Where to buy supplies for your Breve Bag
In New Zealand Lapco
The Veg Tanned Leather that we recommend is produced using a natural process, which is more labour intensive than the alternative chrome tanning. Another alternative, is to use pineapple leather, which is more expensive but can be purchased through Pinatex.
