Traditional Stockman Kangaroo Leather Plaiting

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    THERE IS A 6-8 WEEK LEAD TIME FOR ALL ORDERS PLACED. Depending on current orders this may be able to be expediated, please message me if you need something urgently and I'll let you know how fast I can turn it around. Cheers Charlie.

I plait Kangaroo Leather belts, stockwhips, watchbands, necklaces and keyrings in the traditional manner, like the old stockman in outback Australia used to.

Almost everything is custom made to order and can take between 4 to 10 weeks to make, depending on item ordered and current production already in place. Please do get in touch if you are after something sooner and I'll let you know if I'm able to do so.

Cheers Charlie.

I love to plait Kangaroo hide exactly the way the old Stockman used to!

G'day!
I'm Charlie and I love to plait Kangaroo hide exactly the way the old Stockman used to. I was taught the craft by a dear friend, Rod, who was a Jackaroo back in 40's & 50's in outback Australia. Rod learned the craft from the Jackaroos he worked with, around the campfire or in the shearing sheds after the long dusty days droving cattle.

Plaiting is an old craft, that's been passed down in the traditional manner and I feel privileged to know it. Each piece I make has been hand crafted in the traditional old ways, no modern technology here!

Kangaroo leather is one of the strongest leathers for its weight and softens beautifully with age, making the most comfortable belts, cracking stockwhips and soft watchbands. I love making these products, and wear a Stockman Leathercraft belt everyday! I know how comfortable they are and have never had an unhappy customer. In fact most people tell me how they love the belts more after time as they age and soften.

Plaiting has become my occupational therapy in life as it's a very relaxing craft. It works in well with my crafty wife who loves to knit and crochet. You can often find us sitting around like Ma & Pa Kettle, plaiting knotting and weaving our leather and yarn. You can see her crafty goodness at www.bearlovesdove.com and she has a shop too at www.etsy.com/shop/bearlovesdoveshop .

Feel free to check out my blog www.stockmanleathercraft.com for more pictures and to see what I'm up to. I hope you enjoy checking out my shop and find that special something that you've been looking for. If not, let me know as I'm happy to look into custom orders too. Maybe you like a particular plait, colour, buckle combination for a belt? No worries, convo me (as they say!).

Cheers
Charlie.
