During the Old West, the bandolier was a way to carry many extra shells on one person. It was made famous by Pancho Villa, who usually wore two across his chest. It was designed to carry extra ammo over the shoulder. Many outlaws and bandits also used this type of carry during the Old West.
When making our leather accessories we pay attention to every detail.
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the item to ensure a rich deep color. All our products are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. Our leather accessories are built to last.
We have been proudly making our custom holsters right here in the great state of Texas, since 1950. All our holsters are custom made from high quality American leather.
