Split Cowhide 1/2"
Strapping for bag or belt making.
Use in conjunction with rivets or Chicago screws, buckles and d-rings. 2.8mm thick, 1/2″” wide. Sold singularly. Lengths vary, but your strap will be no shorter than 44″. Perfect for the 1/2″ brass or nickel d-rings.
Split cowhide comes from the underlying layer of a cow’s skin. By running the wet hide through a splitter, the tanner yields two or more ‘splits’ of leather, depending on initial thickness of the hide.
This strap is suitable for our using with the Merchant & Mills RTR rucksack pattern.
