Not sewing related - but an interesting tidbit about how buckskin jackets were originally designed...
In emergencies, a strip of fringe could be cut off to use as a tourniquet or to tie canvas and hides together to make an emergency shelter.
The Lemen website also describes the way fringe creates an illusion of movement that makes it popular with bronco riders.
On today's buckskin jackets, fringe serves a decorative function.
