Colour Black

English Bridle leather is pit-tanned using vegetable barks and leaves for several months. It goes through several stages of hand work to apply the colour and bridle finish that give it’s characteristic appearance. Waxes, tallow and oil are worked into the top of the surface. With polishing and use, the leather burnishes up to give it’s unique patina.

You can usually see some of the waxes as a chalky bloom when you receive your leather. Simply polish over with the piece of sheeps wool provided when you have made your project to bring out the deep lustre of the hide.

The reverse has a bridle moss backing to give a smooth even feel.
