A lot of people have at least one leather bag in their wardrobe. Difficult to replace you would think if you don’t want to wear any animal products. With this workshop we offer an alternative for the cow leather bag. You will use cork leather to create your own bag. This design is made by artisan Jana Chocholackova and at the same time, she will be the teacher of this lesson. You can wear this bag two ways: on your back or on your arm. During the workshop it is also possible to personalize the bag by changing the color of the leather, us a different color strap or adding details like initials.
Artisan Jana Chocholackova (originally from Slovakia) is educated as fashion designer (Rietveld). Since 2012 she started working in an authentic shoemaking place in Amsterdam. She is a daughter of a shoe making family. She is approaching craftsmanship as an alchemist by transforming materials and, with this, creating exciting products, like bags, shoes, belts, key chains etc. Her studio CHOCHO LA CKOVA is an independent atelier specialized in the design and production of high-end leather/non-leather products.
