Belts

Rivet & Hide belts are made from high quality bridle leather sourced from Baker's tannery here in the UK. The site in Devon at Hamlyns, Coylton, has been a tannery since Roman times. Heritage leather doesn't come much better than this!

Bark tanned leather has a stong heritage in the UK. The Oak Bark takes over a year to transform the Devon cowhides into the strong and durable leather that it is. Our belts are supplied by Tanner Bates - traditional English leatherworkers.

Hamlyn's is Britain’s last remaining oak bark tannery. The slow method of tanning has changed little since the Roman era in the UK. The hides, still raw, are soaked in lime where their pores open and the hairs loosen. Over a period of three months the hides are moved by hand into progressively stronger tanning liquors. The liquors come from soaking oak bark in Devon water to extract the tannins. The sunshine filters into the tanning rooms and the hides are left to hang in the West Country air.

The butt is the thickest part of the skin with the tightest fibres. Bridle butt leather refers to the way the leather is finished at the tannery. Both the flesh and grain side are wax finished. This takes time and is labour intensive and only the best leather gets this treatment due to the costs involved. The flesh side is waxed as it sits on the horse's skin. The leather is strong and extremely durable.
