Put your Childhood in a Bag and Play
Having worked as a graphic designer for many years, I gradually developed an interest in working with paper, wood, textiles and leather. While experimenting with different natural materials, I explored various crafting techniques, from bookbinding and silk screening to sewing. Eventually I combined these manual skills with new technologies, such as laser cutting and 3d printing. These skills come into play with my leather patched canvas bags, engraved quotes on straps and my leather accessory pendants.
All my products are designed and crafted by me, Katia Plewnia, owner of LABOUR OF ART - Leather Goods. My designing and crafting take place in my atelier that is located in a creative Hub called Druk, right in the heart of Utrecht (The Netherlands).
