Basketball Leather

A current job using salvaged basketball leather.



For a former basketball player who now rides bikes instead. The leather is successfully salvaged, now I need to develop the pattern and figure out how best to piece these surprisingly small patches of leather together whilst retaining a certain basketballness in the design.

San Marco Mantra: My First

My first Selle San Marco Mantra recover. The pattern was complex but with all that practice on various SMP saddles it came together nicely with the first attempt. This one's destined for Dale's new Baum and might be seen around Hong Kong.
