Sometimes (all the time) we end up with "scraps."  And these can be of considerable size.  When we are feeling organized, we break these down into boxes based on the size and type of leather.  For example, there is a "bear wallet" box and a "front-pocket wallet" box.  

 We thought that our nights spent at the West Glacier Farmer's Market would be filled with sales of these amazing bear coin purses.  Sometimes we misjudge demand.

We have a bit of a new philosophy regarding scraps.  We will get to the piles when we can.  But our aim is to reduce adding to the scrap bins by finishing a leather hide in its entirety.  Here's an examples.

 The Florence tote in an amazing pebbled, full-grain, pull-up bison leather.  How's that for a string of adjectives?

This bag took a LOT of leather -- like 8 square feet.  Here are some of the other projects from the hide.

This type of zero-scrap philosophy may keep us from adding to the six boxes of current scraps.  Two lessons can be gleaned.  First, if you need scraps, let us know.  Second, if you have a custom order, it is typically economical to order a key fob, tassel, or even basic wallet or coin purse that match.
