    The shoes are really beautiful, T. But that animal is magnificent. What are the special properties of the hide?

    compared to the equivalent calf suede
    the colour was deeper
    and the nap was 'plusher'

    btw, the yarns have arrived
    and weaving will start soon
    they will update us with pix

    on a random note: several friends of mine, who have been on safari hunt, have the kudu trophy made up as a traditional lederhosen - part of our national costume.

    actually, this was more out of a sentiment, as deer is the most popular for this. not paging mr. moo.
