Lacing leather

  • • Judit has developed two leather lacing techniques
  • • She is interested in ancient cultures
  • • Her work mostly uses two natural materials: wood and leather

Judit Pinviczki's leatherwork contains many layers of meaning. She is immersed in traditional techniques, and combines her creativity with her deep knowledge and respect for ancient cultures. The two types of techniques she has developed are based on years of research, studying the use of the material on several continents: it is tied with a thousand threads to craft traditions. Her pieces are unique and unforgettable. She sources only the best materials. For Judit, leather design is a meticulous job. Fewer and fewer young people are working in the field of leather – so she supports emerging young talent as she is determined that her craft survives.
