My great grandmother, Annie MacKenzie immigrated from the Isle of Skye to Scotland County, North Carolina in 1880 at the wee young age of 4. She instilled in my grandmother and mother a sense of pride in where they came from, and they passed this pride on to me. Although my last name is different, I am still a MacKenzie. She passed away when I was 4 years old, but I still have fond memories of her.
When I discovered my talent for leather work, I wanted a way to pay homage to my roots, so I designed several items to show off my clan pride. The Clan MacKenzie leather armband came first, followed by a Clan MacKenzie Sporran. I have decided to make my Clan MacKenzie armband available for others to enjoy as well. Several people have asked me if there is a discount on ordering the Clan armbands in quantity so that they can make them available in their Clan tents. The price break starts at 20 armbands. If this is something you’d be interested in, feel free to email me.
Clan MacKenzie Leather Armband
This is the Clan MacKenzie leather bracelet. I designed a unique 3-sizes-in-1 style so that this leather bracelet will fit the majority of people. The sizing holes will create a 7, 8, or 9 inch armband. You can trim it to fit after you receive it or you can leave it intact to allow you to change sizing on a whim. If you are in need of a custom size, just email me and I’ll be happy to make you one.
These are made from high quality, vegetable tanned leather and are very durable. It will withstand showering, camping, sweaty festival-going and just about anything else that you can throw at it. The leather will soften and become wonderfully supple the more often that it is worn and handled.
I designed the armband to have a universal, unisex appeal. My wife happily owns and wears several of these with various designs. Should you run into me at a Scottish festival, you’ll see that I usually wear 2 of these style armbands (with different designs) at a time, on one arm. They stack really well.
