Designing a handbag- step by step- Dior

The quality of a Dior bag is second to none-  and this video shows the process that each and every handbag goes through to be made- by hand.

First they lay the leather out flat, then they cut each piece of the handbag out using a template or pattern.

They then make a mould for the embossing design, and lay the leather over that mould, and use a special leather tool to emboss the pattern into the leather.  From here, they stitch around the edge of each line in the embossed design.

They then hand emboss the Dior logo in silver foil- for the inside lining.

They then use a special leather hammer to glue the interior of the bag to the exterior of the bag, forming the shape and silhouette of the handbag.

A dedicated screwdriver secures the metal hardwear in place- the buckle  that will close the handbag, before the bag is then stitched together.

A chunky silver chain is then threaded through the handbag for the shoulder strap, and secured in place.

And Voila- a Dior ‘Savoir Fair’ handbag!
