Oakside Saddlery

Handmade English Bridle Leather

Made by Hand in Great Britain


Handmade,  Traditional, Bespoke

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.

Hand Stiched

All stitching is carried out by hand using the traditional skills of an English Saddler.
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, practice, and patience but makes for a much more individual, stronger, hand crafted item. Check out my video below of my hand stitching in progress.

Bespoke

Still here. You didn't get distracted on YouTube then!
Each item is handmade to order for a truly bespoke service. Something that is rarely seen now days. This takes time so delivery can take up to 8 weeks. sometimes less, sometimes more.
Remember - Good things come to those who wait.

Old School HANDMADE Leatherwork

I am a traditionally trained saddler. Everything that I make is made by hand. The cut from the entire bridle butt of leather, skiving, punching, edging, creasing, staining, marking, stitching, measuring, finishing, and polishing. All carried out in my workshop in Kent.
