Some awesome new pouches have just landed through our Port view doors over the past month. But there is one that stands out - check out the new Kangaroo Collection limited run (only 10 left).
'Australian Heritage' SWIG Flask
(by Australian Artisan James B. Young)
A genuine 'Australian Heritage' Vegetable Tanned Kangaroo SWIG Flask.
After 4 months of work & waiting, I've launched my new Kangaroo SWIG. It'll divide opinion, I know- but with Crystal Glass SWIG Flasks on the horizon- my goal is to have a 1st class of pouches to dress the world's finest flasks.
"The leather is a vegetable tanned kangaroo produced in Australia for making stock whips.
Kangaroo has the highest tensile strength of any leather - 3 x that of cow.... the skins are a premium resource with a global demand (that mostly goes into high end football boots.
I have used a hand-rolled waxed thread (barbours linen of course!), the buckles are solid brass spur strap buckles - another reference to Australian heritage."
If you're looking for something extra special (maybe for that someone special), this is the one.
