Eastern Buckskin 
		  Breechclouts

If you order a clout made of Commercial Tanned buckskin, I pre-stretch the buckskin before making the 'clout.  Indian Tanned buckskin is already pre-stretched during tanning.

Eastern cloth breechclouts were often very short, only reaching the groin level in both front and back.  Buckskin breechclouts were a little longer - just to groin level.  Worn by Native Americans and Longhunters.

Original buckskin breechclouts were narrow, continuous strips of buckskin.   Eventually, to save hides and the time needed to tan them, 'clouts may be made by sewing 2 or 3 short pieces together to get the length needed.   That's the way most are made today.

Note:  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.
