You’ll work with soft leather or lambskins for the tassel or key fob, or vegetable-tanned leather for the wallet. Everything can be done by hand with no sewing machine required.

Rachael Riedinger Rachael Riedinger
Bag Maker

Rachael Riedinger not only has a degree in art history, but has also been sewing for more than a decade. So she knows her own style. When she couldn’t find the perfect bag in stores, she made one to suit her own minimalist, utilitarian sensibilities—and it sparked her passion for leatherworking. Since then, she’s launched a line of bags, Neva Opet, sold online and in Atlanta boutiques.
