Decadent bark tanned leather with bits of hair stubble and epidermis flaws.
Smokey, soft brain tanned leather.
The ingrededients of the pouch I offer. The hip area of the deer hide with it convex curve was utilized for the main body of the pouch to give it shape. I continued the curves throughout— the top line, the pieced flap, the front binding, the overall shape and corners, the inside reinforcement piece. Despite all of the aesthetics, it is really all about holding up to use and being functional.
Of note are the following details:
– measures 9.5” x9”
-folded brain tan welts and binding throughout
– flap lined with goat
– forged buckle
– heavy duty strap with both fixed and sliding keepers
Quality materials and workmanship make this a fine pouch
