Aixa Sobin Hits the Streets with Fine Handmade Leather Wares

I met Aixa Sobin last year at Artists and Fleas in Williamsburg.  Her leather bags, belts and bags are made from rich, buttery leathers, and she hand sews each ond of her original designs.  I ran into Aixa on the the streets of Soho and asked her talk with my video camera.  Two women nearby had just purchased stylish belts from her, and one of them said, “Can you imagine finding handmade leather products like this right out on the street?!”

You can find Aixa Sobin most days out in front of Balthazar on Spring Street between Crosby and Broadway.

Her website is, and she also has a store on Etsy. And follow Aixa on Facebook!
