Leather beer tankard were popular in the Middle Ages, especially among the sailors of the British kingdom. The leather is not fragile compared to ceramic or glass, so it can survive the wildest storm.
This beer tankard made of leather is suitable for all common drinks, except for those with a high alcohol content, as alcohol dissolves beeswax. The beer mug should also not be left in direct sunlight for a long time (empty), which will break down the inner beeswax layer. After thorough drying, the inner wax layer can be renewed with new hot wax. Excess wax must be poured away.
