Leather carving and tooling is a traditional craft that involves the art of creating intricate designs and patterns on leather surfaces. It is a technique that has been practised for centuries, combining both artistic creativity and skilled craftsmanship. The process of leather carving and tooling begins with selecting a high-quality piece of leather. Vegetable-tanned leather is often preferred due to its ability to retain its shape and accept tooling well. The leather is then moistened to make it more pliable, allowing for easier carving and stamping.

Next, a design is transferred onto the leather using various methods such as tracing, freehand drawing, or by using pre-made templates. Once the design is in place, the leatherworker employs a variety of tools to create the desired patterns and textures. These tools can include swivel knives, bevelers, backgrounders, veiners, and modelling tools. Each tool serves a specific purpose, allowing for different effects and levels of detail.

The leatherworker applies pressure and skillfully manipulates the tools to cut, carve, and stamp the leather, bringing the design to life. This process requires precision and expertise to ensure clean, crisp lines and intricate details.

After the carving and tooling are complete, the leather can be further enhanced through techniques such as dyeing, painting, or staining to add colour and depth to the design. Finishing touches, such as burnishing the edges or applying a protective coating, are also common practices to give the piece a polished and professional look. Leather carving and tooling find applications in a wide range of leather goods, including belts, wallets, bags, saddles, and footwear. It is a versatile craft that allows for endless design possibilities, from traditional floral motifs to modern abstract patterns.

The art of leather carving and tooling requires not only technical mastery but also an artistic eye and a deep appreciation for the beauty of leather. It is a craft that has stood the test of time, preserving the rich heritage of handcrafted leather goods and showcasing the skill and creativity of artisans around the world.
