Leather Straps - A Piece of Culture
Leather straps are among the earliest things mankind used to bind things together. As early as the the stone age our ancestors started cutting out thin straps of leather from their prey. Just like we do today. The ancient Romans used leather straps for virtually everything: Shoes, clothes, sheaths, jewelry, whips, baskets et cetera.
Furthermore, Romans liked their colors! So the leather strap at hand dyed in fuchsia is 100% authentic. Thin leather bands like these would have probably been used as shoe laces or something similar to that.
Thus, should you soon partake in a reenactment event or something comparable to that, do not miss out on the chance of displaying how colorful antiquity used to be. It will only add to your level of immersion and sure act as an eye catcher.
