What is a Concho? Concho means "seashells" in Spanish, They are usually round or oval discs of silver used to decorate on Leather. I am sure you have seen a belt or a saddle with a metal object attached to it, that is most likely a Concho. Primarily made for thick leather, you can apply a Concho to anything, western horse saddles, bridles, leather, clothing, belts, hats, furniture, picture frames, scarves and jewelry such as pendants and bolo ties. You do have to poke a hole through the material so the Concho will fit. Conchos come with a screw on the back just like a Chicago screw. Each Concho I sell comes with leather washers to make thinner material fit tighter.
