[Source] Bola tie cords

From time to time here in the sunny southwest I see leather bola
tie cords which have a flat woven portion where they go around
the neck, and

are woven round on either side, approximately 3/8" to 1/2" in
diameter. Do any of you know where I could procure some of these

Note to Lee Einer

A friend of mine, Don McCoy, who lives in southern Calif. buys
very nice handmade bola cords of the type that you mentioned
from a native American woman who lives in the southwest. She
makes them all, but the prices seem very reasonable. Her name is
Marie Ortega and her phone # is 562-860-3932. Don makes very
nice bolas, some in 18k gold, one I recall sold for over $5000.
These cords looked very nice with them. Good luck. Mention his
name if you call her.
