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.
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 belts that I make now are made from the best of British leather, usually, Sedgwick’s which is finished in Walsall, just 40 minutes from where I am based.
I use a variety of buckles but I prefer to use the top quality solid brass or nickel buckles that are produced by another British company, again located in Walsall, called Abbey England.
The rich smell of real leather and the strong and durable feel of the buckles, coupled together give you a sense of quality and a knowing that each belt is well made and will last a life time.
If the raw materials themselves do not fill you with the confidence of a well-made product, then you have to consider that each belt is cut, finished and hand stitched, using age-old traditional saddler skills.
Handmade leather work will stand the test of time as long as you look after it, giving you an item to enjoy now and a family heirloom to cherish in the future.

These are the only belts remaining that are original and can be personalised to your requirements, just mention it when you check out.
As my skills grow and my technique refines all future belts will be priced accordingly, so these belts are a complete bargain for a short time only, so grab yours now!
