I love the lacing on this!  I don't often see lacing that looks so nice, especially on something that's not American Western wear.  Did you use a double thickness of leather then lace the two together?

Hi!
Thank you for your appreciation! Actually, this is one piece of  9-10 oz. thick leather, which I rounded off the edges and then used this "Double Loop Lace" technique for a more ornate look to it. I was very happy with the result.

I designed the pattern on paper, the shape was slightly oval but with one side wider then the other. The different layers of designs are all done by embossing

or to be more specific; for the embossing i started with the tribal design in the middle, then did the shading around it and finished with the background pattern. Hope I answered your question
