  • Sandast denim Apron

    Apron – Why did I not think of this???

    One customer asked me the other day, "Chris, how do you wash your Apron?" and my answer to him was that you do not. I could not imagine putting the apron into a washing machine and ruin the leather. At the same time, I have been using this Apron for about an year and being [...] More  →
  • M&K Yokoya

    After 2 failed attempts with my Italian hardware supplier, this time I went to Tokyo, Japan t to develop the lock for "Theodore" collection. I've known this company for about 3 years and their price kept me away for a while. First, it was this rare finish slider that caught my eyes so I bought [...] More  →
  • “Theodore” Update.

    He is causing a lot of headaches. Everything is ready; leather, pattern, concept, and etc... except for the main lock. Theodore collection will have Theodore tote, Theodore backpack, and Theodore business bag. Now come to think of it, "Theodore" collection is still a few years away from being complete as its travel bag will compromise [...] More  →
  • Wickett & Craig

    Prior to introducing our new collection, I had to visit Wickett & Craig whose leather is a new addition to Sandast family. I typically do not travel in a month of Jan and a rural Pennsylvania would be the last place I would’ve thought of traveling to. Not to disappoint, this trip turned out to [...] More  →
  • Tuscany & Firenze

    I am extremely glad that I had taken this trip. Not only I was able to achieve what I wanted and more, but more importantly, the fact that I had finally visited Tuscany & Firenze and it changed my perspective of Italy entirely. My first visit to Italy was about 10 years ago and since [...] More  →
  • Tuscany, Italy -MB Pellami

    Walking the streets of London and thinking about the collection, I had this visual tone of Cobblestone color I wanted and have been searching for the leather that can enable me to express it. I thought I got lucky and found it. When I finally received the sample, the color and the tone were perfect, [...] More  →
  • Tuscany, Italy – Texas Conceria

    Leather distressing on “Vegetable Tanned Full Grain Leather” has been the core distinction & uniqueness in Sandast’s collection from the beginning. Therefore, as you can imagine, I have seen many types and kinds from tanneries all over the world. I vividly remember the moment I stumbled upon Texas Conceria and touched “Houston”, I was oblivious [...] More  →
  • Varese & Northern Italy

    I thought I had done enough traveling for 2016 and I did my best to avoid traveling to Italy again this year. However, with the holidays approaching and my supplier scheduled to close for 3 weeks, I was already searching for the cheapest tickets to Italy. Varese is a city located in the northern province [...] More  →
  • Sedona, Arizona

    From the moment I decided to re-do the entire collection, it felt like a race for the past 3 months. I needed a small break. Somehow, I stumbled into Sedona, Arizona and I knew this was the place I wanted to visit. Probably because of the excitement, I woke up at 2 am on Friday [...] More  →
  • London

    “The sun never sets on the British Empire” is a phrase that I have heard a lot. One can definitely feel the might of the once most powerful empire on the streets of London with all the government and cabinet buildings on Whitehall street. From Trafalgar plaza to Big Ben! Stepping into the British Museum [...] More  →
