Very Good. 0823026515 What is latigo? One of the leading leather suppliers, MacLeather Company, defines latigo as "a type of chrome-tanned leather that can be stamped but not tooled or modeled." Another well-known supplier, California Crafts Supply, says latigo is "an oil-tanned brand-free, general-purpose cowhide used for handbags, belts, sandal straps, etc." Still another supplier defines latigo as "alum-tanned cowhide, finished with waxes and oils to produce a supple, extremely durable and weather-resistant leather that mellows with age." So, we know that latigo is cowhide, and is not vegetable-tanned. It is a natural-looking, mellow, durable leather that can be used for all the projects in this book and many more. Provided here are patterns, simple directions, and step-by-step photographs illustrating how to make eleven projects. No previous knowledge of leathercraft is required to make the projects in this book, but even if you do have some leather experience, there are surely new ideas and methods to try. Each project includes a list of materials and tools, as well as a description of problems that may occur and their solutions. 157 pages.
