  • buckskin leggings

    Now if I am correct... the sueded side is the shinier side of the buckskin

    and which do you all prefer? sueded side in or buckskin side in (the side with the little cereals were the organs attach to the skin)?



    thanks,
    Eutrinka

    the suede side is the rough side of the hide. An old trend that is resurfacing is putting the suede side out to look more like braintan. I did mine new leggings this way and I really like the way they turned out
    The things you are doing today are the traditions of twenty-five years from now.

      Leather Sides

      Which side of leather one has in or out is basically a personal preference and also depends on the quality of the hides themselves (Hand or Commercial).

      If you want tradition, well - artwork, photos, and collection pieces show that both ways were used.

      I like the suede side out myself, I find it a bit more comfortable.

      But your choices may not be based on comfortability or even tradition, your choice may depend on the quality of the leather - try and always have the best side out.

        That's the way I was taught. The drawback is that it gets dirtier that way.

          I JUST finished my white Buckskin leggings (with suede side out). They're kick'n'.

              That's interesting. I've heard of (& use) white clay to clean white buckskin, but never heard of using corn meal. Cool.

                The buckskin cleaner I have is that kind.

                I've also HEARD of people using Gum erasers to get out spots on leather. I tried it, and it got most of the spot out! I was impressed. I used one of those "click" erasers that are white on a pr of mocs I was working on that got some dirt on them. They cleaned up pretty well. It wasn't all gone, but from arms length, you couldn't tell it was ever there. It was really faint.

                Funny how we've gotten off topic, here......

                  need help with leggings
                  by Caroline
                  I want to make some beaded leather leggings. What is the best way to have them stay on? A drawstring at the top or what?

                  I was thinking maybe put those little metal gromettes up the side and then lace them like a boot. Would that be too weird?

                  I'm currently making my first otter turban and the only help I need right now is how to keep the feather or plume inside the turban without falling out or moving. Any suggestions and help would greatly be appreciated. Thank You

                  I'm getting ready to start on the leggings for a new outfit, and I've been wondering if there might be a better way to do them. The way I've always done them is I think pretty standard (for northern anyhow) - beaded canvas, ankle to knee, with a tie inside at the top. By the end of the day...
