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!

The Capt. new shot bag is a simple bag 7" wide & 9" deep, he requested a small inside pocket along with the same flap design as his belt pouch, both were trimmed out with linen cloth. The pouch is made from 3oz. veg. tanned leather, hand stitched with waxed linen thread, then dyed to match his belt bag and treated with neet-foot oil and bee's wax. The strap is 1 1/4" wide taper down to fit a 1" forged buckle.
