Made from 3.0-3.2mm thick leather that’s long-lasting and tough, the Leather for Folkies bagpipe quiver is the last word in beautiful bagpipe transportation solutions.
The rigid, hand-stitched tube will keep your pipes safe from most accidental damage, dust and water – but possibly not from trapping in your car door, or from malicious knife attacks at sessions by locals who just came in for a quiet pint. Fitted with an interference fit lid with three buckled retaining straps, one of which can be left fastened to create a sort of hinge.
The fully adjustable, detachable shoulder strap can be worn over one shoulder; or across the body, in the style of an archer’s quiver (hence the name); both are pictured here.
This item is made to order to fit your own pipes when they are dismantled for moving around to gigs, sessions etc. Brown (pictured) and black (not pictured) cases are always possible, with a large variety of stitching colours and a choice of metalwork.
Other colours are available too; and as with all Leather for Folkies products, the possibilities for personalisation are endless. The first quiver pictured has simple text embossing on the lid so the user can tell at a glance what its contents are! Also shown is an end cap tooled with an image of a piping pig, taken from a medieval misericord.
There are further images of a bagpipe quiver made from undyed leather with bespoke tooling on the body and monogramming to the lid; and a ‘double quiver’ for two sets of pipes, in Chestnut leather with bespoke tooling to the lid, and external accessories pouch.
As this is only available as a bespoke item please get in touch to discuss your requirements. Prices start at around £280: this is based on a standard quiver in brown or black with no tooling, with an internal length of approximately 2’6″ and diameter of 6″, and includes the shoulder strap.
