Reindeer Leather Key Chains decorated with Pewter Thread embroidery.
I hand stitch these keyfobs using small scraps of reindeer leather because reindeer leather is a precious commodity and hard to obtain. The Saami raise the reindeer herds and use every part of the animals – for their food, clothing, tools and other items. They only sell small amounts of reindeer leather to the general community. Nothing is wasted.
The reindeer leather keyfobs are embellished with pewter thread that has been hand stitched onto wool vadmal fabric. I use symbols and designs that are based on historic Saami rock art drawings and sacred drums. The reverse of the keychain is made of reindeer leather.
