Restoring an old briefcase

Restoring an old briefcase

I made this video showing the steps I followed to restore this briefcase owned by a friend of a friend. This case means a lot to the owner as he received it from his parents when he got his first job.

I didn't think to spend the time I spent on the restoration but it really needed it, a lot of hand stitching plus a lot of edge finishing on this...

The leather of course was very dry and scratched so I also had to recondition it as much as I could. Unfortunately the corner were badly damaged and I could not do much to fix the small leather bit which went away... Now am just hoping the owner will be happy and appreciate the difference!
