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!

3 Small Belt Bags

The bags are hand stitched with welted seams and made of 2/3 oz. veg. tanned leather. Dyed, and treated with neatsfoot oil and sealed with bee's wax. These three bags are the same size, 5 1/2" W x 4 1/2"D with a small pocket attached to the front of the bag. 4"W x 2 1/2"D  they have two belt loops attached to the back of the bag that will take up to a 2 1/2" belt. The flaps are different on each bag. One has some simple tooling on the front and is lined with a cotton print on the back the edge is trimmed in pig with a button down closer. Second bag is double sided with some simple tooling on the front with a button closer. Third bag is doubled sided, plain with a button closer.
Great for ones fire starting kit or other items needed.
