Shiroi Koibito Cookies

Leather Sandals

I was in Hong Kong for a week for work, and wanted to sneak in a workshop during my time there. Leather came to mind, as the first workshop which inspired me to continue on my hand-made hobby was in Hong Kong when I made my first leather wallet. I googled and came across Fungus Workshop – a quaint little workshop hidden on the western side of Hong Kong Island.
