Woven Strap by Kerry Masarik

This red and tan strap was inspired by what Madison Grant referred to as, "the flame stitched shoulder strap with foliated leather terminals..."  Plate 8, pages 20-21, in The Kentucky Rifle Pouch. Kerry's interpretation is handwoven completely of cotton. The sturdy shoulder strap measures 2" wide by approximately 52" long with 1 1/2" solid brass rings on each end. This strap would look great attached to an early style shot pouch or haversack.
