Make Me: Bridle Leather Belt Kit


One of our Make Me kits to make a sturdy leather belt from English bridle leather or Italian veg. tanned leather with a solid brass buckle from Abbey England. The belt is fun to make, beautiful to look at and immensely satisfying to wear!

The belt kit comes in a choice of sizes and leathers:

Widths: 1 1/4″ or 1 1/2″

Lengths: Small, Medium or Large (measure the length of your favourite belt from the central buckle bar to the most-used hole to work out the best length for you).

Leathers: 3mm thick brown oak bark bridle leather, 4mm thick green Italian veg. tan leather, 4mm thick brown Italian veg. tanned leather; 4mm thick black Italian veg. tanned leather

The Bridle Leather Belt Kit captures everything that we love about learning to make, just the right balance of tactile materials and technical difficulty, that will have you glowing with pride when you’ve finished it. It’s a keeper (excuse the pun), built to last with a solid British buckle , screw rivet and leather keeper.

The wonderful properties of this naturally veg. tanned tanned leather is that it becomes more supple and develops a beautiful patina with age; (plus it’s fully repairable, because if any stitching comes undone you’ll have the skills to fix it)!

Everything you need is included in the kit, bar a pair of sharp scissors and a flat-head screwdriver.
