A portrait of master Erik, a specialized medieval leather artisan at work at the Historical Festival in Raalte, Netherlands I visited during the Easter weekend.
Was allowed to make a mini shoot, thank you so much Erik, the photos will be send to you by now.
All leather work, men’s bags, ladies bags, purses, belts, quivers, leather jerkins, all is made by hand using only the materials and techniques available to the craftsmen of the time. Each piece is unique and special.
