Here's a video I made that shows you how to make your own primitive cordage from leather (or any other suitable material).
How long is it?<br>Like how much leather would you need to cut to make say 15 inches?
To make around 15'', you would need 3 20'' strands of leather. The twining part does cause you to lose 1/2'' - 1'' over the whole length...most of the length-loss comes from tying the knots on the ends of the cord.
interesting- how strong is the cord?
3 times stronger than the individual strips ;)
