Although I learned and loved the art of leather craft in my early age as a teenager in our family business, I never involved professionally into it. I had to study engineering. Airplanes was more than a passion for me.
In the years passed by I collected many leather goods , always appreciating the craftsmanship of a fine leather product. The career though was heading in different direction from my original goal.
So, 4 years ago I decided that I had to do it my way. I built a small workshop with few tools and machinery, and started designing and building goods combining everything I learned from my life journey.
Originally started as a musical instrument case maker. Exotic materials such as carbon fiber composites were frequently used.
I admit the first two years were highly experimental & every instrument case I made was different. But I think I’ve proved my point delivering high end hard cases to anyone had the need of an extraordinary shell for it’s treasured instrument.
I’ve stopped making musical instrument cases 2 years ago and I devoted myself to leather eyeglass cases & accessories.
However if someone is interested in a high end case and cost is no object I’d love to talk it over.
Thank you all for inspiring me !
