My great uncle Andrew Robeson (b. 7/24/1891 d. 4/17/1964) made leather billfolds and key holders as a hobby. When he died, I was given sheets and sheets of colorful leathers, which of course, I didn’t know how to use. Eventually I threw it all away – mildew had begun to grow. I wish I had all that leather now! We could make things like this.
