The Halifax.
This one uses a solid Brass West End Roller buckle from Abbey England. At 1 1/4 inch wide it is perfect for casual wear and jeans.

Free Running Loop

Posted by Simon Harrison on Sunday, September 3, 2017, In : New Products 

This is one of my Multi-Length Leather Dog Leads with the addition of a free running solid brass ring.
But what is it?
A running ring is placed between the trigger hook and the handle. It is free to move around along the length of the lead, but it will not slide off as it is smaller than the trigger hook and handle.
What can it do?
If you attach your trigger hook to the ring you have a nice slip collar. Great for when your dog returns and you find that they have lost their collar! (I make these ...

Douglas Handmade Leather Belt

Posted by Simon Harrison on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, In : New Products 

One of my new belts for 2017. The Douglas Handmade Leather Belt.

Made to measure for the perfect fit in my workshop in Mister-on-Sea, in Great Britain.

Buckle

A solid Brass Swelled West End buckle is used on the Douglas leather belt. This buckle is a traditional buckle design with great looks. Being solid brass means that there is no rust giving years of use without detracting from style.

Stitching

Three lines of Oakside Signature hand stitching. Using traditional saddlery stitching skills and ha...

New Design Plaited Leather Dog Collar

Posted by Simon Harrison on Thursday, June 9, 2016, In : New Products 
So I have made a new deign of plaited leather dog collar. This collar merges the working dog collar style with a plaited collar. Because, lets face it some working dogs deserve a bit of style!

The first thing that you notice is the solid brass West End buckle providing years of rust free use. The dee ring is at the very end and two fixed loops keep the pint well and truly under control. The leather is a reverse turn here, meaning that the inside of the collar, against your dogs neck, is as smo...

uniqueness of the plaited leather camera strap. Hand stitched for the ultimate style and individuality as always.
Colours include the standard black; Dark Brown which is referred to as Dark Havana; Australian Nut which as a red hue to it; and Tan which was once...

New Dog Collar Ideas

Posted by Simon Harrison on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, In : New Products 
I have a few ideas in my head for some new styles of handmade leather dog collars. I thought I might put these ideas to paper - so to speak.

Patent Stripe
This would be a leather dog collar based on my patent stripe browbands and nosebands. A standard traditional leather dog collar with an inserted piece of patent leather. I can't make a collar entirely from patent leather as it is too thin in substance. Therefore the strength will need to be in the normal bridle butt leather that I make all of...

Padded Camera Strap WIP

Posted by Simon Harrison on Saturday, February 28, 2015, In : New Products 
A work in progress for a padded camera neck strap. I've worked out the padded neck part but not sure what to put on the ends to connect to the camera. My thinking has been to stick with what I know and buckle a couple of small bridle cheekpieces to the ends with hook billets to connect to the camera fittings. Or should I stitch webbing straps with standard camera fittings? or something else? Any ideas?
As my photos show I haven't got a clue about cameras!
