January 2019

2019 simply feels promising and we wanted to start the year in the right mood. So we have been busy during the Holidays with cleaning & re-modeling our Studio.

As some of you may know, we’ve had a few difficulties last year and failed to deliver some bags on time. We had a lot of catching ups & make ups to do.

Wayne asked us make a bag for his wife as her Christmas gift early in November. & we’ve failed him. He asked if we could have it ready for his 36th wedding anniversary with his wife which is in Jan.
We couldn’t wait to get started on James Petit.

Both Eilene & Missy has been patiently and graciously waiting for each’s James Petit. Eilene told me that she had never waited this long for anything. I told her our story and promised to make up for our shortcoming with her James Petit.

On the 18th, we had a special exhibition in our Studio by Brett Wheat. It was a beautiful night with beautiful people, plenty of food & drinks, and a lot of laughters.

& Brett was a rock star.

So all James Petits were born well and sent to each respectable home.
It is always heart warming to hear from clients who appreciate our dedication and effort.

”I presented my wife with the James Petit for our 36th wedding anniversary, and I'm happy to report that she was overwhelmed. She said it was one of the nicest gifts she's ever received. The bag is stunningly beautiful, and the craftsmanship and attention to detail is truly world class. Well done! Thank you and best wishes to all of you at Sandast."  Wayne A. Seattle, WA

Apparently, we have a lot of catching ups to do. Rachel has been more than kind and gracious. It has been about 4 months and it feels like the time she meets her long waited James Tote & it will be her 1st in Orchid.

Gentlemen (Aaron, Howie, Mikhel, David, and Ian)…. You guys are next.
Please forgive us for making the Ladies’.
When in doubt, we go ”Ladies First”.

The leather from Italy has come a lot lighter and when it met “Sandasting”, her beautiful color emerged.
