The Unique Qualities of Oak Bark Tanned Leather
We have chosen to make our leather belts using the best quality, full grain, oak bark tanned leather because of its unique qualities.
The long slow tannage ensures that the fibres which make up a hide are allowed to remain in their natural weave producing hard wearing leather.
Because the natural grain is not corrected by destroying the surface of the leather and applying a uniform finish, as is the case with virtually all leather these days, the weave or grain gives each individual belt its own unique finish.
This matures over the years to a rich polished oak colour, showing any natural features, such as scars or growth marks, which give character to the leather.
When my leather belt arrived in the post in Jersey, Channel Islands I could not believe how good the quality was. Made to perfection by a dedicated tradesman and just like the leather belts you used to be able to buy in times gone by. Well done to the maker. Thank you.
