How does it work?

Our DIY box is designed so that you can make your own leather accessory without any previous knowledge of leather craftsmanship. All the materials you need are included in the DIY box, you don't have to buy anything else.

The highlight of our DIY boxes:

The parts are already cut and provided with holes for sewing. This way we can guarantee that everything fits together perfectly and that you can sew the bag by hand without any effort. When it comes to metal accessories, too, we make sure that we only use parts that can be attached without special machines and are still firmly fixed.

As soon as you have put together your DIY box, you will receive an e-mail from us with the order confirmation and access to the instructions and basic videos. You can then look at these in advance or when your DIY box arrives. And then you can get started!

Is the project suitable for beginners?

Our clear answer: YES!

Why are we so sure about that?

Because over 7,000 people have already sewn one of our DIY boxes and over 92% of our customers have never worked with leather before or have only done small handicraft projects. Because the leathercraft techniques of gluing , sewing and edge processing are repeated over and over again and because we have created detailed explanatory videos for all three topics, you will have learned everything you need to make your leather accessory in just a few minutes.

In addition, the leather parts are already cut and provided with sewing holes. So, technically, there's only one sensible way for the pieces to fit together. Of course, we have also explained this with photos and text in our step-by-step instructions.

If, contrary to expectations, you have any questions, our popular and highly rated customer support will be happy to help you. You can reach us Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. via email at hello@bagsandpieces.co.

An important clue:

This DIY project is perfect for you if you like trying new things and generally have a certain affinity for DIY and crafting. You don't need to be particularly handy, but you should still enjoy making your own and be willing to learn new techniques.

How long does production take?

You made the mini-saddle in less than 5 minutes.

If you want to finish the edges of the mini-saddle, we recommend that you only apply one coat of paint. This then takes another 10 minutes + 20 minutes drying time.

Where does the leather and the rest of the materials come from?

The leather in our standard collection comes from a Veneto tannery that has been working with leather for more than 20 years and supplies many well-known luxury leather goods labels. With innovative methods, especially in the area of ​​water treatment and resource-saving techniques, the tannery combines traditional craftsmanship with modern expertise.

The leather in our special editions mostly comes from surplus sales in Tuscany or is our own production that we commissioned from Italian tanneries. Surplus sales are leftover stocks from major luxury leather goods labels who no longer want to use these leathers as they work in seasonal collections. The leather is carefully selected by us on site, so that we can also offer very good quality and great features here. Treasure hunt, next level!

The other materials such as metal accessories, straps and other supplementary items come from suppliers in the leather processing industry. We source these from all over the world but especially Italy, Spain, Portugal, China and France depending on where we can find the best product for your DIY box.
