Here is a project of one year ago… restoring an old military bag
By the emptying of a cellar, one day it arrives at our home this military bag: an authentic piece of history. I love that simple design and that tone of military green!
It was a bit seedy and rather sloppy. Hence the idea to try to restore it, making it a bit nicer, changing some details (now destroyed, rusty and not very functional).
I decided to do everything with vegetable tanned leather with a contrasting color, but not too much – I opted for the brown, that still leaves that tone a little home-made.
Work on military bag have not been many:
– Fund stiffening completely redone in leather
– Redesign of the front closures using the buckles
– Leather renovation of the shoulder strap attachment points
– Logo on the front
I know … a job that amused me 😉
