Oak Bark Tanning for our Leather Belts

J & F J Baker of Colyton, Devon is the only remaining oak bark tannery left in Britain and is situated beside the river Coly. Their traditional slow-tanning methods take up to 12 months and preserve the natural weave of the fibres in each hide resulting in unique, hard-wearing, richly coloured organic leather.

As featured on the BBC’S Countryfile program.
