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!

This bag is a little larger in size, 6"W x 5 1/4"D with a 3/4" tapered gusset.
It's 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. A small outside pocket 4"W x 2 1/2"D fitted in the back with two belt loops wide enough to take a 2 1/2" belt.The flap is plain in the front while the back is lined with a striped linen and the edge is trimmed in pig, with a button closer.
