Fine kangaroo leather, the strongest leather for its weight! You won't find better quality anywhere. Most braided leather sold today is made out of a Mexican cowhide or produced in China, with no feel or color. We use only the best, and hand braiding by master craftswoman! Rich chocolate 3/16ths braided triple strand looks great with our drop pendants or crosses! Finished with horn button. We do our best to keep these in stock, but in-case we have a huge run on them the production time is 2-3 weeks.
