This Tray Purse is based on the Florentine coin purse designs, coupled with Origami techniques, I have come up with this ONE piece (plus tab) coin purse. There is no glue or stitch used in the making of the main purse body. The tab, though has been glued in place.
In making this purse, the leather is wet moulded around a wooden form, then slowly air dried. The method of construction is quite unique. I believe this technique is a world first, to make this type of product.
