Valentine's Day Gifts for Her: Handmade Leather Goods from a.b.kHandmade Charlotte
Leather is one of those materials best left in its most natural state—the variegated texture of natural leather takes on a life of its own. Brooklyn-based designer Alya B. Kazakevich truly understands the beauty of natural leather and has created a gorgeous line of bags, shoes and accessories using old world craftsmanship.
Nothing beats leather goods with that fresh-from-the-tanner feel and the strong aroma of natural leather. A.B.K, a designer originally from Belarus, encapsulates all of those things with a perfect blend of old world classic, urban and country styles. Her line of shoes, accessories and bags is perfect for those of us in need of a good leather fix.
Authentic leather craft is not easy to find these days, and this line in particular captures the distinct nostalgia behind the art form and style. All of the leather used is domestically produced, vegetable-tanned, hand-dyed and stitched, leaving the leather with a natural look and feel—a timeless classic.
