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!

Rising Sun:



This is just a small simple bag, (61/4" wide x 7" deep) made from 3oz. veg. tanned leather all hand stitched with linen thread and dyed to a dark brown. There are no inside pockets, the strap is 1" wide, and the bag if worn on the right the iron forged buckle will be to the back. There is a rising sun tooled in on the flap along with a small button closer of the bag. The leather has been treated with neetsfoot oil and beeswax. The bag is well made and will hold up for long time to come!
