Today’s post is an educational video sent to us by one of our community members that highlights a little piece of leatherworking history. Specifically, it goes into some detail about the tools and techniques that have traditionally been used in making a dog collar. Many of these techniques will be familiar to you. Many of the tools are still available in their original form today.
I love this video because it really gives a lot of perspective on just how far we’ve come in leatherworking. Some tools and techniques have stood the test of time, whereas it’s also clear that we now benefit from having access to better materials and the added knowledge of generations of new artisans and craftsman.
How long have you been doing leatherworking? Are you an old hand that has stories/insight from ‘way back when’ that you’d like to share with the community? We’d love to hear from you!
