Over the years I've purchased what's called a "Farmers Bundle" consisting of miscellaneous strips and pieces of various leathers in color, finish and thicknesses etc. Basically it's a bag of scraps but it's turned out well for me for use on my canes and walking sticks. I used to get them at the local hardware store but of course they discontinued it. I did find the bundle again however at Hobby Lobby but at a higher price but still affordable. I'm wondering if any other crafters here use the leather bundle to accentuate the sticks.

Awesome! Good to know. Thanks for the info. My trinity of products for making hiking sticks is wood, brass and leather followed by design and skill!
Your products are much more refined compared to my roughout Southern Plains but maybe I can learn from your posted skills. I think I might have the talent but not the tools.
