Finally finished my first little lop-sided salmon skin pouch, sewn with synthetic sinew and fastened with a shell and some buckskin. It's currently full of mussel shell pallettes and a a buzzard bone pen. 9/10 pre modern - as I couldn't face licking and hand-laying cordage for an hour with deer sinew the other day. Some people may not consider these natural materials very appealing, but they are wonderful to work with and to my eyes are beautiful to look at even when not in use.
