Schöne Arbeit von Victoria Ledig: Taschen und Kram aus Tierkörperteilen, die normalerweise in die Tonne wandern.
Most leather is processed to the point of becoming unrecognizable as what it is and this contributes to a general attitude, which I chose to question in this project. This collection of bags aims to reconnect with the material’s origin and natural beauty.
I took those body parts not normally used in leather goods, as the cow’s head, tail or lower leg and turned them into leather, highlighting their natural forms and textures. These parts would normally be discarded within the process or be processed further into an unrecognizable animal ingredient.
