The Woods Mug with Ol'Red Folklore Bison Leather & Hickory Wood Handle


The Woods Mug is perhaps the coolest mug for your adventure or for just looking boss walking around town. Use it for coffee, tea, beer, or whatever your favourite beverage is. Drink it in style.

* can be used for both cold and hot liquids.
* redish brown coloured leather sleeve is hand cut from Tasman bison hide leather (tanned in U.S.A)
* features a hardwood handle made from hickory with brass rivets.
* Comes with the option of a pint sized (500ml) wide mouth Bernarden mason jar or a 750ml jar. See our other listings for more varieties.

To Clean: Slip the sleeve off and wipe down with a cloth. To buff out scratches use a soft cloth and water then treat with a leather conditioner if desired. Wash the mason jar as you would any glass or cup by hand or in the dishwasher.

The Woods Mug was designed for my wife who loves to drink her beverages from a mason jar, but when it came to hot liquids she hesitated. She needed a sleeve of sorts and requested that I design a wooden handle for a leather sleeve for her. (She is the leather worker ("Hide") and I the woodworker ("Chisel"). It took months to get the feel just right, but now she is quite happy sipping her coffee every morning. We added the 750ml option to our sleeve after a friend inquired if it could work on a larger jar for him to drink his beer from. It fits a 750ml Bernarden Wide Mouth Mason Jar. He is one happy camper now.

*We only use leather from reputable tanneries in North America. The colours we have for our leathers vary by what we have on hand. Our hardwoods come from offcuts from local businesses. The woods we primarily use are: maple, walnut, hickory, cherry. Custom requests are welcome.

Care instructions

Woods Mugs:Slip the sleeve off the jar to wash. Wash with damp cloth and mild soap. Condition with a leather conditioner if desired. Our handles are finished with tung oil. Over time they will start to look a little fuzzy, to return it to its silky finish wipe on a coat of tung oil, mineral oil, or jojoba oil. You could also apply beeswax to your handle.

Our sleeves fit tighter on a 750ml jar. To loosen the sleeve to slip it off: add hot water inside the jar and let it sit for a few minutes, then empty the water and slip off the sleeve.
