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!

5 Coin Purses

Here are five coin purses that I just finished up. I have found many different uses for these little purses.
I use them for a flint wallet, also for carrying shot cards for my fowler. A friend of mine uses his to carry his cleaning tools for his fowler in.
I use one for my period coin and my rosary that is in my waistcoat pocket and it works great for ones pipe tobacco. I'm sure that one could find other uses for them.
They are made from 3/4 oz. veg-tan leather, hand stitched and tooled. Dyed and treated with oil and bee's wax (2 3/4" x 3 3/4")
