So sorry mate. The sharkskin wallet didn't turn out 100% to my liking, and I wanted to add another item (stingray cardholder), so I had to push things back a bit. I'll send you a PM when I get the giveaway thread posted up.

New sokoto goatskin colours in the workshop:
Purple
Navy
Terra-cotta orange

As well as natural, undyed vegetable-tanned goatskin with a nice natural grain, for those who are sick of plain old cowhide biggrin.gif





Some dividers and card slots in the works for a couple different wallets:

Any pics of the natural goat with some patina? Very curious to see how it ages and develops.

I've only just got it in. Never used it before. I'd imagine it should age similarly to any quality natural veg-tan leather. It has more 'grain' than cowhide so I think the ageing combined with the texture should make for a really cool patina.

It's coming along great! Such a good colour combination. No idea why I never tried it sooner.
