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!

New Bag

~ Great looking Bag ~


This is a bag that I just finished making. It is made the same as all of my past bags, it is 6" wide x 7 1/2"  deep and a 1 1/2' gusset, no lining or inside pocket the strap is 1" wide with a forged buckle also has some tooling on the flap. This is a well made leather pouch.
