Process


Cut Leather

The leather is cut by hand from a large Hermann Oak Bridle Leather hide. Each product is custom sized, ensuring a perfect fit.

Handstitch

The item is assembled by handstitching the leather using the saddler's method, preserving leathercrafting tradition.

Finish the Edges

The edges are beveled to make them round. They are then sanded and burnished to make them smooth and glossy.

Protect

Waxes and oils are then applied to further protect the leather and give it a slight shine. The leather is still a bit stiff, but will become soft and supple after breaking it in.
