Eulalee Leather specializes in one of a kind carved leather items. If you have a custom design in mind contact me (Joren Eulalee) and we can work through your idea together. If you are interested in a pre-designed bag there are some examples below.
Well this bag took about a year of conversation to finally come about. Instead of having the clutch with the usual shoulder strap she opted for a wrist strap. We were working with cow skulls, Navajo patterns and wild roses. It was designed for Ayla of, Hold Your Ground, an wonderful person and designer. Sold.
We started the design process with the themes: cow skulls, roses, wolves and navajo designs. Wolves were weeded out quickly since they didn't really fit into the desert-esque feel of all the other components. Above is the initial concept sketch. At the time this was done we were going to go with the Master hobo shape which later changed to a new shape altogether.
The change of shape made for a more elongated canvas. Here we have the navajo design more integrated with the skull and roses. The front of the bag will be the skull with the diamonds and roses on the back.
Foxes hunting pheasants. Fox finally relaxing, embracing a feather. Possibly after dinner of said pheasant but then again perhaps he is a vegetarian fox who merely collects feathers. Must do more foxes and pheasants but hopefully next time on a larger canvas. Sold.
These are sketches for a bag I designed for Ginny. We worked through a few ideas before deciding to go with paisley. I had never given much thought to paisley before, seems like an innocuous ancient Iranian design then you find out that it has ties to the Victorian bourgeois, the rebels of 1960s and current gang affiliations. Who would have known.
This will be on the back of the bag (Master Hobo) and a slightly simplified rendition on the inside flap. The basic idea is that this has all of the characters in the scene together in a wide shot, throughout the bag there will be candid close ups.
This will be on the front flap. I plan to stain the bag a bluish purple. Red won't look to great with this stain so I plan to dye the crabs and anemones peach, coral and pink and of course the kelp will be green always perfect with purple.
