Lord Kurosh al-din is one of our resident leatherworkers. He has quite a talent and is usually more than willing to teach any curious persons about his art. Leather is used for many things in the SCA, with the most common item probably being hardened leather armor for chivalric combat. Kurosh has experience with leather armoring, as well as shoecraft, and hatcraft. He can be contacted at yeoman_locksly @ yahoo. com.
