Chiaka Bag: All New, All Leather

I don't know if its appropriate to say that this is a giant step for Gidan Nodza, maybe it's because I never felt the idea of making a full leather bag was that much of a challenge somewhat. Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying it's a walk in the park... trust me when I say that making a fully lined, zipped bag in any shape or form is far from easy, the biggest challenge for me was mixing leather with brightly coloured, very busy, very patterned fabric, thread, hardware etc in way that works...or that it appeals to someone else other than me... or my mother :$ It could be said that another reason for my "then strong" reluctance in going all leather was because I didn't want to deviate from the original design philosophy of Gidan Nodza which was to infuse African motifs with the latest fashion trends as well as accessories and such. 
Now that I have given in to my customer's request, I must admit that I am glad because the feedback has been overwhelming and of course it made me see that it wasn't such a bad idea to do both-not that I thought it was in the first place know *shrugs*

Now the first attempt was the very popular Chiaka bag, I cant seem to make enough of  this version hence the reason why I opted for it to be the cherry popper :D.


I love how the effect of the red thread, brown leather edge kote and silver hardware is heightened and sharpened against the very black leather. POW!




Anyways *yawn* gotta call it a day, I have a spoilt zip to fix and two bags to finish in the morning. So, what are your thoughts on this here our new addition to the GN stable? I would love to hear them.

As always, that you very much for stopping by and may God continue to bless your hustle.

Oh, it's just gorgeous! I love all-leather bags so I may have to seriously start saving for one!! My most expensive bag cost me $138 and it got stolen last May (with all its sad!) so I've been so reluctant to buy a pricey bag again. :(

Oh! I wanted to add that your flagship item will always be your bags that mix fabric and leather but perhaps the all-leather bags will appeal to a new, currently untapped demographic!

Sorry about your bag... I know how attached I am to my bags and contents so I can imagine how you must have felt at not only loosing the bag but the contents as well :'(
