I have devoted more than ten years to the practice of making leather goods. This passion is fueled by my fascination with the vessels that carry our personal articles through life. Bags become companions and beasts of burden as they transport work, play and escape. My creations reveal this relationship through the finishes I have developed with vegetable tanned leather.

Yellow! The first solid colour bag we have ever made, and it’s by request. Ralph Escamillan is a collaborator and dear friend of the Fiveleft team, and he always has awesome crazy ideas! (that’s why we love him) 

Last year he was elemental in developing the fashion film we put together. He wrangled the dancers, orchestrated the movement and even danced in the film. He also featured in our fashion show for the launch of elleven. So if anyone deserves an awesome custom bag that has only one solid colour, it is him. Thanks Ralph for being so awesome and getting involved with our projects. This yellow beauty will be done soon!
