This is the largest book on flat plaits to have been published, yet it does not cover the most common plaits!
This is because they have already been covered in two other books by the same author Bush Leatherwork and More Bush Leatherwork.
This book is intended for the person who already knows the basics, and is interested in developing further. Many of the plaits illustrated here are unusual, but easy to do while others are very complex and not for the faint hearted!
The book is quite heavy, but spiral bound to allow the pages to sit open whilst you follow the complex plaiting patterns
