Couta Leather Knot Keyring
The couta is a beautiful timber boat shape with a low and wide hull originally used as a fishing vessel along the coasts of Australia during the late 19th century. The named emerged from the barracouta fish species often caught by fisherman from this type of vessel (not to be confused with the barracuda). This keychain features a monkey fist, a seafaring knot that fisherman may have used to weigh down the ends of a fishing net.

For normal cleaning and removing dust, wipe with a very soft dry cloth. In case of spots, wipe with a soft dry cloth that has been well wrung in boiled, then cooled clean water. A water based leather cleaner or very mild, diluted pure white soap flakes of your choosing may be used and followed up with a leather conditioner if desired. Let them dry naturally. If unsure we recommend a spot test first. It is often better to leave smaller spots untreated and for time to wear them off & allow the surface to be a living patina.
