I'm starting a horsehide footwear contest on Sufu - please do let me know if you're interested.
All horse leathers welcome - shell cordovan, re-tanned horsehide, vegetable tanned stip, variants of front quarter, etc.
Doesn't matter if it's from the USA, France, Argentina or Japan - as long as it comes from a horse and is worn on your foot
Check the thread on Sufu for more details:
Don't worry if you can't register yet. The contest won't be starting till some time 2012.
We need a sponsor for judging and first prize trophy too
Let me know if anyone is interested in helping out.
