That’s absolutely beautiful! Is it from a shoulder or another part?

Carreducker
The qualities of a handsewn shoe laid bare...

stitches tuck into the sole channel; a leather toe puff gives shape and strength; welt stitches hold the layers together; cork infills and a leather shank gives support, sandwiched between an oak bark leather insole and sole; layers of oak bark leather pasted and nailed together form the heel; and a leather stiffener gives support at the heel.

Struggling to find a glorious gift for someone special? This unique Russia Leather Briefcase is exquisitely crafted from the leather discovered on the shipwreck of the Metta Catherina. This was a Dutch cargo ship sailing from Russia that sank off the Cornish coast in 1786. Perfectly preserved underwater, it is a beautiful example of the Russian tanning technique that could never be replicated anywhere else in the world.

Limited to three pieces, each is stamped with the serial number and the commemorative date of the shipwreck.

An astonishing piece of work by master leather crafters, this wooden-framed hat box is covered in English oak bark tanned leather from Britain's only remaining traditional oak bark tannery. The long, slow tanning process ensures the natural fibres that make up a hide remain in their natural weave.
