Hey! David Myhre here. I'm new to the forum and would love some insight on making belts using embossed lamb hides or thin prints.
If combing the embossed leather with a veg tan backing, would you always glue and sew them together? What would be best if you don't want the look of stitching, but the belt needs to be combined with something to make it hold up over time? If it does need to be stitched, would you saddle stitch or machine stitch a belt like this? Also is there another type of leather other than veg tan that would be preferred for the backing of a belt? Thanks so much for any help!
