A History of Leather Drinking Vessels

Leather has been used to make drinking vessels since Viking times. Our range of historically based full grain leather handmade drinking vessels are adapted for contemporary use & may be viewed here.

Leather was used at the same time as glass, pewter and pottery. Cheaper than glass and pewter, light in weight and not as breakable as pottery.

The Hidebound product range goes to the heart of the original British tradition, yet all our full grain leather luxuries are intended for today's use and enjoyment.
