Bridle Leather

Bridle Leather

British bridle leather with amazing durability

Bridle Leather was traditionally the material of choice for bridles and harnesses in the United Kingdom. It is made by the prestigious leather company Sedgwick & Co., established in 1900. The hide used to make the leather is taken from the shoulders of adult cows and is rigorously selected from the UK. There are two tanning processes to make the leather. First, is the pit tanning process using 100 percent vegetable tannins. The second is the drum tanning process to place the leather in a giant drum-shaped receptacle for beating. After the tanning process, wax is manually applied multiple times to enhance the leather’s durability. It takes about four and a half months to complete the various processes by the hand of the craftspeople. Distinguishing characteristics of Bridle Leather are the frostlike white bloom that emerges on the surface and the durable yet elegant leather texture. This leather fully exhibits the traditional craftsmanship and top-notch skills of English leather makers.

The Look of Natural Leather

We have chosen to keep natural markings such as scars, wrinkles, veins, and pores on the cowhide to showcase the natural appearance of the leather in our products. This is one of the most distinctive features of our bags. The appearance of the leather will vary depending on the part of the hide and individual differences between animals. Through careful observation, you will uncover your leather product's unique, one-of-a-kind appearance.
