The alchemy of leathercraft

  • • Bogdan loves to experiment with colours, shapes and textures
  • • He draws inspiration from Romanian motifs
  • • He is very particular about the materials he uses

After several years spent in graphic design, Bogdan Deliu started making leather goods in 2012. A year later he opened his own workshop and he has dedicated his entire time, knowledge and creativity to this craft ever since. He is self-taught and loves being a one man show in managing his handmade business. He often reinterprets Romanian motifs in the making of unique creations, which go beyond the traditional leather craftsmanship of local artisans. Bogdan pays great attention to the type of leather he works with, always choosing the material that allows him to bring to life the designs he envisions. He considers himself a modern alchemist who experiments with colours, shapes and textures and rarely uses the leather as it is.
