I agree Kathi! Sometimes there are technically flaws to a clients design, I think it behoves us to point those things out, the problem is how to do that without the critique becoming negative? Changes are always hard for the other designer to accept but because it’s a custom bag you own it to yourself as a form of protection against “that’s not what I wanted”.
A slip pocket would have been nicer.
Bontex has two new product one is called Bonflex and bubble, it’s almost like bonded leather. It’s made with latex and has a really nice flow, you can iron it, twist it, very nice flex to it.
