Product Overview – Handmade Bridle Leather Belts

Product Overview – Handmade Bridle Leather Belts

With this month’s January Sale taking place, I thought it would be nice to feature some product overview’s during this month. Starting with the bridle leather belts.

Starting Out

First belt

When I first set out on this journey of becoming a Saddler, one of the first items I ever learnt to make from leather was a belt.

Technically, the easiest items to make, once you have learnt the basics of cutting leather, preparing it and then stitching it together with a fancy buckle.

British Raw Materials


All my belts are cut from the best of British leather. Usually, Sedgwick’s leather which is finished in Walsall, just 40 minutes from where I am based.

I do like to use a variety of buckles. The best one are the top quality solid brass or nickel buckles from Abbey England.

The smell of real leather and the strong feel of the buckles, really does give you a sense of quality.

Age-Old Skills

Clair Stitching

When you consider that each belt is cut, finished and hand stitched, using age-old traditional saddler skills, only then can you understand the quality of each belt.

Handmade leather work will stand the test of time as long as you look after it, giving you an item to enjoy now and forever.
