Show us your leather

Thanks guys!

I see Manifold products whenever I'm in Tokyo. Just gorgeous. My FH wallet reign is made by Manifold - about all I was willing to spend at that time :rolleyes: - which I now regret... I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be disappointed!

could u post some detail pics of the reign riff?

I like the OWA-12 CO TAN, downside is, there is no 'hook' to attach a reign, the other wallets of the same size/configuration are a bit busy for my liking, except the elephant ones, but I can't justify elephant skin to myself...

Hey Tiro - it's late & light is crappy here, so I zoomed in on my pic from a couple of pages back....

I can take some better shots in daylight, but in the meantime, here are stock shots from Rakuten:

@sansome1877

what is it in the first picture, a boot ?

incredible !

Not sure if that's a boot or a shoe. I came across I think 6 low top boots from 1860's or early 70's, I'll take some pictures and post them.

That manifold that hollow posted is the nicest piece of leather I have ever seen. Cordovan and Croc makes me cream my shorts. Then I did the price conversion...

That looks like ostrich knee to me, not croc skin.

actually, you are right, that is the ostrich leg one, this is the croc:

Nice!

Do you know where their croc skin comes from?

^ Thanks mate!

There are lots of ostrich farms here in Australia (in fact, Hermes and Gucci use ostrich hide from a farm near me!), we also produce the world's best crocodile skin (Aussie salt water). So yeah, I get to see these exotic skins a lot :)

Too bad most of the hides are bought by big international brands, and not much work is done with them locally...

Those Manifolds are really nice!

I have no clue actually, I'm considering going for the croc/cordovan combo though, as it has a ring to attach a reign and the cordovan wallets don't...

I'm guessing I'll need a proxy...

I love my Kawatako and didn't think I would buy another wallet for a very long time but one of those elephant skin wallets might need to come my way. Does anyone have any evolution pictures of elephant skin?

I'm looking for some good tips to start out leather crafting. I'd like to start off a new hobby and try and hand craft something small at first (bracelets and maybe wallets)

Does anyone have any good resources, websites or tips on this? I'm trying to find a place to buy undyed and untanned natural leather and also a good place to find some start tools.

I've been searching the forum and I figured maybe this is the best place to ask.

Thanks
