Christchurch boasts a talented community of skilled leather craft professionals. As I admired a leather watch strap with its unique style and colour, I wondered if I possessed the skills to recreate it and turn it into a business opportunity.
I took on the challenge and crafted a replacement watch strap, but learned some valuable lessons along the way. I realised that choosing leather that was slightly too thick presented challenges, and that having additional leather craft tools would have been beneficial in the process.
With this experience in mind, I'm now considering the business idea of crafting and selling leather dice bags and small leather bracelets. I'm excited to explore the possibilities and apply the insights gained from my previous leather craft endeavour to create high-quality and visually appealing products for potential customers.
