April 2019

A good friend gave me a friendly advice upon visiting our Studio that we were literally “Polluting our Studio with too much lights”. Following his advice, we’ve decided to give our Studio a new make over.

We changed all the bright white LED lights to warm lights and lighted up the walls using the spot lights.

We had a small get together recently and everyone tells me our Bar looks better and drinks taste better.

Also we are re-arranging our Studio and decided to make this section an extension of our Studio.. and moved my work station to the front. Its wall had to be worked on first… so I began to paint.

it once was an ugly & uninviting 25ft x 8ft wall in dark grey.

We are very excited with the new look of our Studio and we plan to keep you informed of our progress!

Of course, we have also been busy with the leather works & we have been doing more custom works lately.
If you have an idea or can imagine one in leather, just talk to us and let us handle the leather!

After 4 long months of wait, Tom & Kathleen finally came to pick up Tom’s Christmas Gift to Kathleen. Getting a warm hug from Kathleen & seeing Tom beaming with smile reminded us how lucky & fortunate we are to be doing what we do here in our Studio.

Our next top priority is to finish Thiri’s custom messenger bag. She actually has waited longer than Kathleen did as we’ve made quite a few changes along the way……. & because she lives far away and this messenger is probably the most complicated pattern we have done, it took a lot longer.

But Finally, we have the pattern and we are about to get started!

Thiri ! Your messenger is next. Thank you for your patience!

Mark is an old friend & Ambassador of Sandast and a few weeks ago, he called & asked if we could make some adjustments on “Christopher Travel” he had gifted to his daughter, Christina. Although they both love the classic look & its vintage metal frame, they rather want the bag to open bigger so that packing may be easier

Luckily, we had one Christopher available and a sacrifice had to be made. We’ve modified below Christopher in Cognac and shown the photos to Mark.
Mark is very excited with the new look and has ordered the 1st “Christina” in Cobblestone for Christina’s graduation gift. Stay tuned!
