Sherstival topic: «All about Leather»
Leather and felt are a perfect union. However when starting to get acquainted with the skin, the master inevitably faces many questions. A huge selection of genuine leathers and tools for working with them is pleasing on the one hand and tempting on the other 🙂 I want to buy all the best and preferably immediately. But is it clear what exactly to buy? How not to waste money?
