I, Dean Santini, DBA Santini Leather, have been designing and making leather goods since 1993. I design and craft purses, backpacks, satchels, messenger bags, billfolds, briefcases, unique waist packs and ergonomic bags that help relieve stress from neck and shoulders. I also craft travel bags with small, hidden pockets for passports or large pockets for a change of shoes. I put a lot of thought into my bags by adding organizers, hidden compartments and extended zippers that allow easy access and visibility. The materials I use to make my products are a variety of cowhide leathers. I design, cut, trim, mold with a mallet, sew, glue, add hardware and then condition my pieces. I have been in business since 1993 and warranty my work. I have built up quite a clientele over the years, with customers calling me to find out when I will be in town for the next show. In addition, I recently won the first place award for “Most Wearable Art” at the 2013 Delray Affair in Florida.
