Leather Craft



It's taken a few months but finally I have got my own flat, a nice upstairs apartment in Oamaru's main street and recently have just started leather work again in my spare time. I have been inundated with orders for my wet formed leather bags so have just started on them. When I have some time in between customers orders I need to make an 18th century baldric for my French sword. The style of baldric will be the same as the one pictured above and now I have a fantastic stitching pony on which to stitch it together. At a later date I will be making traditional 18th century baldrics in vegetable tan leather for sale with brass double D buckles , so if you have a sword and need a good quality baldric correct for Jacobite reenactment get in touch with me. I will also be making other items as well such as plaid belts and sporrans.
