We take pride in everything that we make
At Badass Creation we use several assortments of leather that range from 3 ounces to 8.5. All pieces are cut and assembled by hand, which translates to a uniqueness specific to the leather used. This combination of material and process ensures both durability and rugged-ness.
Research & design
Our bespoke service doesn’t start with leather and tools. Before all that comes something even more important: an idea and a little bit of imagination.
We will interpret your ideas and provide a proof of the artwork via email. You can approve it or make any changes that you want. This process will go back and forth as many times as necessary until the art is exactly what you want.
The design is first traced or drawn into the damp leather and then that same design is carved in with a knife deeply into the leather itself. The actual tooling of the pattern is the next and most time consuming, but also the most enjoyable phase. Then the tooled leather is allowed to dry.
Due to the nature of the leather and water-based dyes we used, no two pieces will ever be the same. Each item is distinctive in it’s colouration, and each will change and grow with its owner, creating a patina that is unique to you.
When applied to the hide it creates a beautiful mottled effect which highlights the natural markings of the leather.
Each of our products are hand sewn using traditional yet very strong technique known as saddle stitching. Saddle stitching involves the use of two needles and an awl. As the awl puncture through the hole created by the holes previously pricked, the needles are passed through and pulled tautly. There is a knot made by each pass-and-pull so that even if one thread comes apart, the rest of the stitching won't unravel.
We finish each product by hand to perfect every detail. Your accessory will be treated and finished with a conditioner and wax. It will allow the leather to interact with its environment, meaning that as your item ages its colouration will deepen and it will mature in appearance.
It is very hard to give an exact price due the fact that each piece is one of a kind and completely different from another. Simply as a guide most of our seats range from 250 to 800 euro and may be more or less depending on the job. Prices of wallets vary between 100 and 250 euro. Guitar straps starting at 100 euro. It is always the best to contact us and ask and we will be able to give you a right price based od your idea.
