More natural vegetable-tanned leather stuff…

As per title πŸ™‚ Just finished oiling and waxing a few things over the last couple of days, hope you like them!

The first one is made of natural kangaroo leather, used for 18 months…

If only kangaroo hide was thicker… then I could get all my garrison belts in Australia 😦

(Kangaroo leather is much stronger and more durable than even the very best cowhide – due to the collagen fibres in the corium layer running mostly parallel with the grain surface – but usually only come 1.3 to 1.5 mm in thickness)

Here’s another – Italian veggie tanned boots, about 2 weeks use.

 

 

Here’s a bonus picture~
