English Bridle Butts
Wednesday, 25 November 2015 | angie
I use traditional Top Quality Sedgwick`s English Bridle butts (used by saddlers for Horses so strong and secure) which we purchase as complete hides in Black or Australian Nut Brown which I feel most compliment the coat colours of the breed I love - Staffordshire Bull Terriers
Each Skin is infused with a traditional recipe of natural oils and tallow (this feeds the leather) by our UK Leather Supplier.
shown above is an Australian Nut Butt
When an item is being produced most of the tallow/oils becomes worked into the product however a slight bloom may remain on the surface of the leather, this is desirable as it is a protective coating for the leather.
My products are all cut out by hand from the skins, I do not mass produce as each item takes time, Edges are bevelled, stained and sealed in the traditional manner.
