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!

Bottle Canteen

 The customer provided their own bottle for this great looking leather covered water bottle. My wife does an outstanding job on covering the different bottle we have offered. Once the leather is dried, Gail stitches it in place. I stitch the bottoms in and add the strap and finish the leather with dye and seal with beeswax.
