Hide & Seek

Antoni Gaudi, a great organic Modernism architect, once said

“Nothing is art, if it does not come from nature”.

I do not hide the so called flaws found in leather but often seek to include them. As long as they do not disrupt the integrity of the item it is to become part of next, I do not want to erase the story of that animal. Fat wrinkles, scars and discoloration can add an unbeatable touch of character and beauty to a piece – one that only nature can make.

Why would you not want to include that story for others to read!

Welcome to 3pdhandmade.com

What a crazy ride and long journey to get here to this point – an official website for Artisan Leather Goods by 3 Parks Design! I cannot wait to see how it develops from here but for now it is a work in progress. Along with introducing you to my artisan leather creations, I want to share my ‘Confessions of a Leather Worker’, first introduced as snippet posts on the 3PD Facebook page. These are leather lessons I’ve learned, moments in my maker’s life, how-to instruction, and so much more still left to decide on. A quirky little blog by a slightly quirky gal.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will join me on this journey by subscribing!
