About Us

Hi, my name is Vlad Polkovnikov.
I am the founder of PV-bags company. Let me tell you how we create your bags

5 steps to perfection

  • Working with leather is my passion

  • Step 1 – Designing the bag

  • Step 2 – Materials selection

  • Step 3 – Patterns

  • Step 4 – Hand sewing

  • Step 5 – Package

Every piece I create at my workshop is exclusively handmade involving the use of specific processing techniques and elaborate handwork. The extensive knowledge of the materials is key to the creation of high quality bags made to stand the test of time. The entire production is situated in one place what also helps to ensure no damaged or flawed product even by accident ever shipped to buyer. I believe the items I make are more than simple products but rather embodiment of my passion.


The first step is the idea. This means putting pen to paper and sketching out thoughts, usually over a cup of tea. Our design style is intentionally minimalist to achieve a fuss-free look that showcases the natural qualities of the vegetable tanned leather and beautifully handcrafted detailing

Choosing the right leather, hardware, accessories, threads are all of utmost importance.

Pattern drawings are developed both manually using cutting mats as well as computer programs.

The integrity of the product, the evenness of the lines, and the overall shape depend on the care with which the patterns and patterns are made.
The parts of the product are processed and cut by hand.

Before the advent of machines, everything that needed to be sewn was sewn by hand. And even now there are still craftsmen working in this way. Most of the items we produce are made in this way. In most cases, hand sewing on leather is used when higher quality leather goods are required. It was originally used in the manufacture of saddles.

For example, any thread damage in a machine stitch will first result in a few open stitches near the tear, and then soon the entire stitch will open up as well. With the saddle stitch technique, both stitches near the rip will remain intact, preventing further opening of the seam.
