THE HANDMADE PROCESS
Through leather working, Bird Trouble intends on encouraging and transiting our community into a
sustainable consumerism lifestyle. Our handcrafted process starts in our Chicago studio where our leather goods are started from scratch. We source a natural veg-tan 3/4 oz shoulder cow-hide leather that we’ve tested to last
for years and age with organic grace. Each pattern, inspired by a sketch and an idea, is drafted in-studio. Each piece of leather cut with the help of our hands and trusty tools, continued by hand dying with the water-based eco-dye that never fails to stain our hands. Finishing up the process, we sit at our industrial sewing machine to attach the parts and tie off thread ends.
