Wood Bead Woggle

When a leader completes their training, they are presented with their Wood Beads, which they can wear proudly with their Scout uniform.

 

We have designed and produced a wood bead woggle. The woggle is embossed into the leather using a brass stamp we made on a fiber laser.

 

The woggles are die cut from a quality cow hide vegetable tanned leather which is around 2.80 mm in thickness.

 

Vegetable tanning or veg tan as it's sometimes called, is one of the oldest methods of tanning known to man. It has literally been around for centuries. But less than 10% of the world's leather is tanned this way today.

Vegetable tanned leather ages well and develops a rich patina over time.

 

The design is embossed into the Smooth outer layer of the woggle. The internal surface of the woggle is left as is, its slightly rough surface helps the woggle grip on the necker. Finally, the woggle is fastened with our own embossed metal rivet.
