Have you read my info articles about original frontier buckskin items and how I make mine?


Buckskin 
			Pipe and Possible Bags

Our possible and pipe bags, like our clothing, are fully hand sewn with authentic stitching.  NOT shown in this image is a double buckskin draw string around the top to pull and tie closed to secure the contents.

This style of possible bags was carried by Indians to hold bare essentials needed on the trail.  A mountain man may also wear one  fastened over his belt or sash for "critical" needs in case caught off guard without his primary hunting pouch.

Pipe bags were used to hold the stem and bowl of ceremonial pipes, and a small tobacco bag of ceremonial smoking blend.  Bag size used should be about 3" (7.5 cm) longer than the stem of your pipe.

Both types of bags were often highly decorated with beading and/or quillwork.  If you intend to do so on yours I recommend the Indian tanned hides.  They can be easily decorated using traditional methods.  With commercial tanned 'skin you have to punch the needle through the hide.  That makes it nearly impossible to do good looking work on a pre-made bag.

Possible Bags

Note:   These sample buckskin colors may vary slightly depending on your browser.   But then, colors vary slightly anyway between batches of buckskin during the smoking or dyeing processes.
