I have a company that designs and manufactures leather bags and accessories for business women. http://mybestfriendisabag.com.au. I am about to do my second range and have the designs in mind. I am looking for advice on handbag construction. As these bags will be used repeatedly to carry laptops and business items plus all the things that women usually carry in their bags, they need to be strong and I need the leather to stay firm and the bag to keep its shape. I need advice on how to achieve this in my specifications to the factory.
I am therefore looking for someone who has both leather handbag design experience but also leather handbag construction experience.
