These baldrics are made from vegetable tanned cattle hide that have been dyed and dressed using period methods and they are made entirely by hand. The design for these baldrics comes from a number of 17th century illustrations and surviving examples notably a cavalry troopers buff leather baldric in the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds. All the seams are cross stitched and the ends of the straps are scalloped.

They are 65 inches (164cm) long from the bottom, over the shoulder and back to the bottom. The strap is 2 1/2 inches (6cm) wide at the narrowest point and the two loops are 6 inches (15cm) wide. The loops will take a sword scabbard that it up to 2 inches (5cm) wide.
