Leather Shot Bags & Accouterments for the French & Indian War.
Welcome to my Blog! My name is Darrel Lang and I specialize in the Replication of Leather shot bags & Accouterments made in the colonies by the harness and saddle maker of the18th century. All items are hand sewn using waxed linen thread, dyed, then treated with neatsfoot oil & bee’s wax. The leather used is of veg. tanned cow hide 2-3 or 4-5 oz. weight. Other materials used are pig skin, period correct linens for the 18th century and iron or brass buckles. Please take a look at what I have to offer. Thank you!

Leather Belt Bags

The two bags posted here are 6 1/2" wide x 5" deep, both have a 1 1/2" gusset sewn in.
 The first bag has a brocade lining sewn in on the back of the flap and the edge has been whipped stitch to protect the raw edge. The second bag has a small amount of tooling done on the flap, no lining added. No inside pocket on either bag, two belt loops sewn to the back will take up to a 2 3/4" belt.
