  • Philip Cordes updated the Artwork Citrus crop
    Frontal version of an up-cycled crop top. An up-cycled garment of indeterminate origin. Soft, yet comfy, this citrus green crop top is accented with orange & magenta.
  • Philip Cordes updated the Artwork Painted Bag # 01
    This bag was created by folding the leather, and stitching closed where the folds met.  A durable bottom was added, and all hole/weak spots were reinforced. The shoulder straps are adjustable, and the top of the bag closes via a drawstring beneath the flap. While this piece is no longer available, others like it may be made available upon request, with appropriate deposit.
  • Crafted from 4/5 ounce veg tanned leather. This material molds well when wet, yet provides sufficient strength and flexibility when dry. Like all garments or objects created from leather, they just improve with age & care.  Shoulder straps were tastefully added to pull the piece closer to the body, and a center lace has been added to the front, aiding the wearers on/off access of the piece. Still available for $485.00

  • Philip Cordes updated the Artwork Black W/ Gold
    For the creations that I make, and continue to create I use 4/5 ounce veg tanned leather.

Still available for $485.00  
  • Philip Cordes updated the Artwork Painted Bag # 01
    This bag has gone through a few stages to get it to it's current state. Begun as a complement to another I made for a dear friend, originally it was unpainted, but became so, as friends pointed out that to not paint it was to not be true to my current sense of self expression. Created by folding the leather towards itself, and stitched. A durable bottom was added, and all hole/weak spots were reinforced. The shoulder straps are adjustable, and the top of the bag closes via a drawstring beneath …
