This is great!

I admire leather.  A material that’s been in use ‘forever’ so has an entire eco-
system around it.   I don’t know nearly enough about leather though.  Hearty
thanks Brian, So many variations and specialisms.
Somehow, it reminds me of timber and hand tools.  Same basic stuff, but zillions
of ways of handling it, and specialist skills for particular duties..
