to Kerrigan - South-Australia

The design was inspired from looking at antique Western gun leather.

The diamond inserts are calf skin with the hair on. The main body of the strap is made out of 3.2 mm vegetable tanned modelling hide which has also been hand carved and embossed

It is line with an Italian calf skin garment grade suede. The buttonhole ends are reinforced with kangaroo leather, the thickness there has been skived down to 3. 2 mm thick in total as needed to fit strap buttons well. The all lot is hand stitched with a saddlery grade waxed thread. Buckle and studs are antique brass.

length 46 " to 49", width 2 1/2 " at shoulder and 1 1/4"for the ends
