Buffalo leather bag (overlapped strap)-chocolate brown

Made from shrunken buffalo leather. This is a traditional method of tanning where the hide is stretched over a fire pit causing the hide to shrink and create the wrinkle look on the hide.

All parts of this bag are made from the same buffalo. Please note the two incisions on the flap are where the bullets penetrated the buffalo. This is to honor the buffalo (using all parts) and continue its life in a new way.

The buffalo was taken for food. This is a wild animal and the leather has imperfections like scaring and discoloration.

I value imperfections as that is what distinguishes the individual animals' story.
