The use of leather to fill the needs of man dates back all the way to the garden of Eden, where God used leather skins to give man his first clothes.  This is where man learned to use leather.  Since then man has used leather to serve his needs in countless different ways.  Besides filling many practical uses, leather can also be very decorative.  It can be worked with attractive designs and patterns to create items that offer both beauty and usefulness.  Leather can be molded, shaped, decorated with patterns, burned, and colored.  These various ways of decorating leather will enable you to turn commonplace items such as belts and wallets into works of art.
