I have a perfect bag for my lap top. It is made of birch bark, näver in swedish. Unfortunately it has been worn and some of the strands of birch bark are broken.

Sadly the corner is completely broken

So I decided to mend it. I do believe in mending instead of just throwing, buying, throwing, buying endlessly.

I have used leather in different brown colours, I cut the material in bands as wide as the originals.
