HOW LONG TAKES EMBROIDERED SOME ARTICLES?
Develop a belt embroidered by hand is quite hard work, it takes eight days at a rate of six hours a day. The process remains essentially
the same with which emerged:
1 .- Choose a good leather that meets the requirements of flexible size, color and uniformity
also be free of scars that are felt in the final product, the leather should be kind of suede, reaming or skins without hair, goat,
sheep and deer is necessary if we want a thin leather to achieve the required thickness is struck to settle and compact (then it is
compacted manually or mechanically to setback and provided an uniform skin) to achieve the right consistency are drawn and cut the
strips into lengths and pieces of skin that make parts or foot straps. Buckle with a knife trying to remove cuttings from a single
slit are given body and brightness (Some use molds to make drawings of it).
2.-From here go to the drawer or "opener" that his experience
of hands and split plots with special blades strokes in drawings and designs (can draw with pencil first point and then hard to draw
the blades to open the skin) for it a little damp skin with tape measure, chisel, wedge, knife, compass and piece of iron, wooden
ruler and square. Often have a template that starts from the banks that distribute the embroidery frame whether florets frets that
are interspersed with geometric shapes or in the case of pieces with the initials or name of the owner.
3.-The embroiderer receive the leather strip with a piece of blanket stuck behind, developing the more difficult task and therefore the best paid, with the cut edges, the embroiderer with his“Lezna”, blanket, leather, pita and a Spot toothpick made of mesquite wood, which serves as a draw embroidery point and pot, desk, sharpening stones and rules.
The development of a saddle can take up to one month, the embroiderer is twisting the pita according to the thickness required to open the drawing with the previously “Lezna” needle that is thinner tip, will give an extremely fine finish on the leather surface where he will apply the pita (The cactus Thread) with patience until a fine piece of art is finished. Then a saw machine puts the saddler lining in the back of the belt as well as their snaps and buckles that attach to a metal shell that is lined on both sides, then cut out and by hand is finished the edges. Finally, another person adds snap, buckle up and place the pin leaving the product ready for sale. With the excess leather could be made holsters, hair holders, earrings, or clothes pins (all have a cost and there is not wasted material).
Aspects of embroidery in pictures onto leather once taped glasses are subject to a timber and are guided to move to the leather with a “Lezna”
The noble and humble in the process surrounded the ixtle (Pita) twist activity being ready for sale
The quality of embroidery is determined by the thickness of the pita threads bent, the special needle used called “Lesna” to pre-open the embroidery holes and design drawings that are embroidered. The more fine and accurate these are is more delicate and beautiful work, because even those who do not know the subject will notice immediately the difference of an crudely finished product from one well done.
The process basically remains unchanged since this craftart was born.
1 .- The saddler chooses leather to meet requirements for flexibility, size, color and uniformity, and also must be devoid of scars that manifest in the final product, even if they become a natural scar on the skin of the final product should be seen as a label of authenticity and inherent natural skin bovine cutting rather than being seen as a flaw.
After this, the leather is cut with mold, or by Knife according to the use that is going to be.
2 .- The designer of drawings or "opener" wets the leather and draws the figure on it that the saddler ask.
3 .- The embroiderer is twisting the pita thickness and inserting it onto the leather according to the design require, very carefully applied to achieve true works of art.
It is also very important to have beautiful and finely made drawings on the leather surface that is going to be embroidery there is a lot of trimmings that include all kinds of reasons, especially ranger, or cowboys styles the most chosen by the general public, there are those who like to carry for example, a belt having heads of horses or bull, firearms or monograms of trademarks, there is an immense variety of reasons why the cowboys and ranger people prefer ornaments and bouquets drawings that would fascinated with them.
