Black or Brown?

holster_lowres

Fed up with a shock to the system every time I sit down with my secateurs in my pocket I decided it was time to make a holster for them, and working on the theory that if I want one, other folk might want one as well I made a batch.

Cut by hand from vegetable tanned Italian Leather, these are then hand sewn  with rivets for extra reinforcement. Once sewn the next part is to submerge them in water for a short while, until soaked through and slide them onto a wooden mould and then leave them to dry out. The moulding gives them shape which stays, making it much easier to slide the tools in.

If you want one they are now on my web shop http://www.fitzrobbie.co.uk/acatalog/For-the-Gardener.html .

Everyone who has seen them has most definite opinions as to which colour.

Black or Brown? which do you prefer?
