Something Blue





Two new, blue additions to the contents of my everyday bag: a smoky blue goatskin leather pouch for my earphones, and my phone case from Society6. I purchased the leather pouch along the AS1 walkway in school, from a recent NUS graduate who decided to carry on his grandfather’s business of belt-making and leather work. It was wonderful to meet someone so knowledgeable about his family’s craft, different sorts of dyes, materials, and how the leather will only grow more beautiful with time. The pouch was made from a piece of scrap leather, which explains the asymmetric flap and the supplier’s markings on the interior, and only cost a few dollars. Look out for him at the bazaars!
