Oakside Saddlery

English Leatherwork

Traditional - Handmade - Bespoke

Traditional English Leather

Made by Hand in Great Britain

Designed to Last

At Oakside Saddlery I make traditional, handmade, bespoke leather goods that are designed to last. Everything is made by hand; from the first cut to the final polish. Stitching is carried out by hand using traditional, two needle saddlery stitching. An old process that is much, much stronger than a machine stitch. Each stitch is individually made using a hand waxed linen thread and the strength of my two hands. Check out my store below to see just what it is I can make, or, if you have something specific then simply contact me and I will see what I can do.

The Finest English Bridle Leather

Traditional English Leather Dog Collars, Leads, and Belts. Handmade in the UK by a Traditional English Cordwainer from the finest English Bridle Leather

Sedgwick English Leather

I only use JE Sedgwick's, World renown, Full Grain, English Bridle Leather.

Full grain leather is the best type of leather and uses the full thickness of the hide. The cut I use is the Butt. This is the best and most expensive, cut of leather from the hide. Supple, hard-wearing, and strong with a superior finish and the provenance to prove it.

Simply the best in British hand finished leather

Hand Stitching

I hand stitch all of my handmade leather items. This is carried out using a traditional, two handed saddlery stitch. This style of stitching is very strong as each individual stitch passes completely through the leather to the other side before making the next stitch. This takes time and patience but makes for a much more individual, hand crafted item.

My Latest Addition

Crown Handmade Leather Dog Collar

This is a new collar for 2020. It uses a classic crown whole buckle to add a distinctive design to the bridle leather dog collar. The buckle and dee ring can be solid brass or nickel plated. This will give the buckle a good, long life, without rusting or corroding.

I use full grain bridle leather for all of my handmade leather dog collars and leads. I use bridle butt which is the best and strongest part of the hide. Sedgewick English bridle leather comes in 14 different colours so I am sure that you can find something to suit your dog's style.
