“Leather has played an important role in the development of civilisation. From prehistoric times man has used the skins of animals to satisfy his basic needs. In recorded history, pieces of leather dating from 1300 B.C. have been found in Egypt. Primitive societies in Europe, Asia and North America all developed the technique of turning skins into leather goods independently of one another. The Greeks were using leather garments in the age of the Homeric heroes ( about 1200 B.C. ), and the use of leather later spread throughout the Roman Empire. During the Middle Ages, the Chinese knew the art of making leather . The Indians of North America also had developed great skills in leather work before the coming of the white man.” A leather wrap set of cufflinks, has more history and lifestyle in it beyond mere accessories.
