Custom Leather Bag for Extreme Paddle Boards 2013

My old friend Jim Archibald is realizing his passion for Beach Paddle Ball through his new company Malibu Paddle Co. He shapes and constructs the paddles by hand, each piece a work of art. He came to me a couple of weeks ago, asking for a “ferrari” of leather bags to be made to hold the paddles, a couple of balls and a few personal items. We set to work outlining the details on paper, Jim chose the materials he wanted and then I went to work. You’ll see here the process I took to fulfill his order. The bag is stunning, easy to use and rich to the touch.
