A few of you may know that I come from an upholstery background. Specifically automotive upholstery. Well here lately barnacles have been growing on this submerged log in my head. Ideas. So I am thinking about buying up some supplies and designing some custom camera bags and straps and lens cases and the such and starting a web based business marketing my hand/machine made stuff. These ideas are in the formative stages and I am going to ask you all what you think about the idea. What are some of your thoughts about bags, straps, and glass cases? I am seeking some input on this to help me along.
I can also get Naugahyde materials, cloth materials, lizard skin, snakeskin, ostrich skin, all of that stuff. Embroidered. Or just plain Jane dropped shipped on purchase.
I am thinking high end but affordable...like Luigi Artist Artisan type stuff...you know like come home from work every night and spend a few hours making this stuff...building up my inventories...having a website...marketing plans.
How to do? What do you think??? Doesn't everyone want a shoulder strap bag that hangs perfectly on their hip?
