Herringbone

I have been wanting to write more about my peers and so here you go. While reading up on the 2010 London Tweed Run, which took place last month, I came across a brooks saddle that had been engraved with a tweed/herringbone design. I was thrilled. I have always had an affinity for engraved leather and for leather saddles as well, so this invoked excitement naturally.

The artist is Kara Ginther and her work is superb. Only vegetable dyed full-grain leather can be carved this way, which makes Brooks saddles a perfect canvas so to speak. Kara is working out of Madison, WI, but her leather work has spanned the globe. Check out her FB page here and more pics here.

Loving teh nautical theme!
