That’s him : D)
Elated and who insisted on taking photos of his brand new hand made vegetable tanned leather sleeve for us to use on this website : D)
A perfect fit of the iPad with its keyboard cover, as well as the Apple pencil, slipped into their respective slots.
Close up of the fit, of which the perfection is a result from painstakingly molding the raw leather to a wood mold that was cut to dimensions and thickness.

We use both.
Made in France waxed linen thread, Fil Au Chinois Lin Câblé in 532 size.
We had to fulfill three specific requirements to make this feng shui wallet for our customer:
- It had to be green which is our customer’s lucky colour
- It cannot have a hole at the bottom of the wallet to prevent the wealth from leaking out
- There must further be an all round zip for double prevention and to prevent leaks from the top
Short of punching the holes and fixing the straps to my customer’s watch. Waiting for him to come over to take more photos.
A key feature we had to keep in mind is the thickness. This watch strap replacement is for a lady’s watch that has a tiny face.
Blue money clip project for a customer. Pieces of blue dyed through veg tanned leather cut out. Ready to be assembled.
Hand made two watch straps. One with a square end the other with a pointed tip. One has all round hand stitching, the other without.

Our customer’s custom bag is taking shape. The handles have just been stitched onto both the front and back panels of his office bag.
The individual parts of our customer’s custom order office bag are assembled in this photo. There are still many small details that need to be prepared.
Thereafter, it’s the assembly, putting the various parts together.
Hocks-Alcis prepares for a blue crocodile bag project. Here we practise rounding the corner of the blue crocodile patterned hide. The tan colour doesn’t quite fit the blue though. Will probably go with a darker brown.
Another round of testing on a hand dyed red veg tanned leather.
This custom made travel clutch was commissioned by a Singaporean gentleman.
