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!

Better late then never

 This bag was to be done in June but, one thing or another kept it from being finish. Now it's July and I am still waiting on a iron buckle to finish the bag, no buckle, so I took one of my bags and removed the buckle and finished the bag.
The bag is a simple bag no inside pocket no tooling on the flap, just a plain simple functional bag.
The bag is all hand sewn using waxed linen thread, made from 3oz.veg-tanned leather, dyed a dark brown and treated with 100% neets-foot oil and bee's wax. Bag size is 7" wide by 8" deep with a 1 1/2" gusset, all seams are welted.
