Step 2: I will email you a few questions to find out which colors & size you have in mind for your wedge bag. Keep in mind not every color in the world exists as leather so I'll ask you to have more than one option.
Step 3: I will scour my sources to find the colors you're after. I will send you photos as well as leather swatches by mail (if you like), to confirm your final selections.
Step 4: We will talk about refinements and details (including edge paint and thread color) you might like to make and we will conclude with one final colorway for you to sign off on - Your custom designed colorway!
Step 5: Within 30 days of sign off, Mark will expertly construct your custom bag, and we will ship the final piece to you. You will own a truly one of a kind custom Wedge Bag!
IMPORTANT Please Read:
This is for Wedge Handbag Lamb Luxury Edition color customization ONLY.
It may be possible to make a bag with other leathers, please email me to discuss, prior to purchasing this listing.
Please do not request a new bag shape, changes to existing bag shapes, copies of other brands bag shapes, etc.
Keep in mind this process may take weeks or longer depending how decisive each client is. I won’t rush anyone to make a decision before they’re ready. Leather is a finite resource so I prefer to move slowly and respect the material source.
I will be available via email to discuss each individual piece.

Wedge Handbag - Lamb Leather Luxury Edition
Some of my favorite details:
In some previous collaboration pieces, we have utilized firmer handbag leathers to accentuate the crisp straight lines of the wedge bag form. For this version I wanted to accentuate the slouchiness of the form. To do so took some clever thinking.
It's not traditional in leather work to line lambskin with lambskin like this as it telegraphs textures (eg interior stitch lines). Mark came up with clever lamination method that would allow us to both keep the inner pocket and maintain the overall SUPER slouched silhouette that I wanted to achieve.
This bag is the softest soft leather tote. You will love to squeeze it in your hands!
Mark drawing from his Hermès lineage classical training, shows off his incredible saddle stitching and edge treatment skills.
Each stitch is individually hand pierced with a diamond-shaped awl then stitched through with a single thread and two needles, one at each end of the thread.
Traditional French style edge finishing
Notice that crease that runs parallel to the edge line? Using a special tool, that crease is hot-ironed into the leather in the traditional french style, showing the edges have been heat sealed.
After ironing Mark sands and paints those edges in multiple rounds to get the perfect finished cross section. Not only does this finish look sleek but it helps to protect the handbag from moisture.
A bit of suede texture will keep your bag in place on your shoulder; at the strap arc we’ve reversed a segment of leather to reveal the suede side.
Mark suggested a gorgeous lined pocket shape which narrows at the bottom, gently gripping the base of your phone so that it doesn’t rattle inside as you walk. It’s a refined detail that I love.
Interior key ring
Each Wedge Bag is made with an interior key ring that is perfect to clip your keys so that you never lose them again.
Also works great with one of my leather leashes to connect a zipper pouch or anything else you like to keep at hand.
