What was the inspiration for your design? 

Global warming is an issue that I’m always paying attention to. Global warming can cause grought issues which dries the soil so much that it appears cracked. The vision of cracked land is the inspiration for my design. 

What are your thoughts working with leather?

My biggest challenge was figuring out how to present the leather. This is also the first time I’ve designed using leather so choosing which leather to use was a challenge for me too.
