    Medieval leathercraft
  • How did you find leatherworker.net?
  1. Hello! I was wondering if anyone knows some sources on medieval leatherwork. I've been tooling leather for about a year, but I have a major interest in the medieval period. I don't do re-enactment myself, but I would like to know how to make leather projects that are about as accurate as they can get. I have been looking on the internet, but couldn't find any books or other information on medieval leatherwork. There are some patterns, but it is often unclear to me if they are actually medieval, or whether they were based on modern (fantasy) movies. I am therefore looking for sources about this. For patterns it could be preserved items from the middle ages, but for the leatherworking process, a description is probably needed... Any information is welcome! About tanning and preparation, stitching, tooling, colouring, perhaps some patterns, other processes (such as making cuir bouilli). Is there anyone who knows such sources? My thanks!
