Having a hard time running across original woven straps to use as inspiration for crafting. Any pictures or guidance on where to look would be appreciated!!

This strap for a tomahawk carrier is the first strap that came to mind,









 While scrolling looking for the 'hawk sheath, I came across this,


I can't remember if it is an original or a copy of one....

 If you look through "The Kentucky Rifle Hunting Pouch" by Madison Grant you will see a few. I think there is even one on the cover.

some of those above are likely repurposed upholstery webbing.
