Natural Oak-Bark Leather – sneak preview…

Got some cool photos of really nice belting leather, I thought I’d share.

 

So a bunch of guys got together and coerced Terry-the-uber-leathersmith for some thick natural leather belts…

We wanted some nice Celtic leatherware to kick some Americana butt 😛

 

This is what Terry was able to organise for us:

15 oz plus, 12 months oak bark tanned leather in a natural/undyed finish

(I’ll calliper the leather for precise thickness when I get mine).

This is a one-off from the tannery, a limited edition leather if you like.

The English oak bark tanners at J & FJ Baker & Co took special care to ensure they maximally emphasise the texture of the grain

Something that Terry tells me the folks at the tannery call ‘growth‘.

So yeah, this is oak bark leather deluxe 🙂

 

What are you waiting for? Head on to Terry Dear’s Celtic Leathercrafts, and get yourself a belt that eats Red Moon belts for breakfast!
