The Materials


A brief insight into the materials I use and where they come from.
 
Traditional Bridle Leather - J&FJ Baker - UK

J&FJ Baker is the last remaining tannery in Britain to be producing Oak Bark tanned leather. Known worldwide for its strength and durability.
Local Devon hides go through a slow and gentle tannage which can take 14 months before being finished with a special blend of oils and greases which feed and protect the leather and bring out the natural grain and colour.
Available Colours: London Tan - Dark Stain Oak
 
Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather - Conceria Walpier - Italy

Buttero leather from Conceria Walpier in Italy is known for its beautiful array of vibrant colours and smooth surface. Initially a firm temper but this will soften slightly and take on a stunning patina with use. The finish of this leather is outstanding.
Available Colours: Natural - Yellow - Whiskey - Brown - Black - Blue - Taupe - Violet
 
Shell Cordovan - Shinki Hikaku - Japan
Available Colours: Natural - Antique
Exotics
 
Solid brass hardware - UK and Japan
 

Bonded Polycord - Japan

I have tried many different threads over the years including Linen and Polyester. This bonded polycord from Japan is by far the best and is what I use in almost all of my products.
 
Leather and Thread samples are available for a small fee.
