Every so often we stumble across a company that is solving a problem we hadn’t really thought about. Once such company is Lacuesa who makes hand-stitched wallets from deer hides. So what is the part we hadn’t thought about? What happens to the deer hides of most deer after they have been harvested by a hunter? Usually they are left to become one with the Earth.
