The smell of fresh smoked hides in your nose. The velvety touch of hand softened leather on your skin. The subtle give and stretch of your clothing as it molds to, works with, and protects your body. Buckskin. There is no material on earth quite like it.
Traditionally tanned buckskin is one of the world's most ancient, beautiful, and durable leathers, but it is also something more. It is a link to our human past. It calls to that ancestral place inside each of us of us that remembers what it felt like to know the world around us intimately, that had the ability to shape the substance of our lives from raw materials in our local environment.
Buckskin Revolution is about a re-evolution of buckskin clothing. It is a book (in progress), a website and a business offering goods, tools and educational resources for your buckskin and ancestral skills needs, but it is also a movement toward a way of life more viscerally in touch with and connected to the world around us.
Viva la revolution!
