The Making of Our First Bag

Remember when you sold the first cup at your 2nd grade lemonade stand? Selling our first Restrepo Leather bag felt a bit like that, except a lot better (with champagne, instead of lemonade).

From our first customer, Shoshi:

As soon as I saw the Tayrona Handbag on the website, I knew it had to be mine. I am totally thrilled with my bag and blown away by the craftsmanship. Allowing me to customize the colors to my taste – a rich brown leather combined with a bright green suede interior – gave me a bag that is both classic and completely unique. I get stopped on the street all the time by people asking about where I got my bag, and I always say "Restrepo Leather" with pride!

Juan was excited to get to make Restrepo Leather’s first bag. Not to mention, he loved the leather/suede color combination (and so do we!). We sent Shoshi some photos of the making of her new Tayrona Handbag while she waited for it to arrive, and now we wanted to share them with you.
