Bridle Belt Making Class
On this two-hour belt making class, you will learn to make a sturdy leather belt from naturally veg. tanned leather with a solid brass buckle from Abbey England in Cheshire. The belt is fun to make, built to last, beautiful to look at and immensely satisfying to wear!

The belt is available in brown, black, green or natural oak bark tanned leather, in two widths and three lengths:

…and is ideal to wear with denim or chinos. (Use the guide shown to calculate the length you need, measuring from the centre bar of the buckle to the hole you use most often).

To work with the best materials and create products that last:
Tactile, durable and supple veg. tanned leather from Tuscany and oak bark leather from England. Veg. tanned leather is a natural, organical material; the tone and depth of colour of the leather varies and changes with use and age, developing a beautiful patina over time. (Leather is a waste material and by-product that would otherwise go to landfill or be incinerated).
Natural 100% felted wool for its durability and softness
Solid brass / nickel hardware from Italy and England
