What is English Bridle Leather?

Why are our English bridle leather collars and leads a cut above the rest? Detail...

It's the way each stitch is precisely sewn for optimum durability and beauty. It's the way each thread is trimmed for a clean, finished look. It's the way all leather edges are trimmed, rolled and sealed. It's the way each piece of solid brass hardware is chosen for its utility and great looks.

What's the big deal about our English bridle leather collars and leads?

  • Only U.S. native steer hides used for minimal stretch.
  • Fully stitched with heavy duty nylon thread for ultra durability.
  • Hand-rubbed edges and old-world craftsmanship.
  • Solid brass hardware for corrosion resistance and a long-lasting regal look. Solid brass hardware will not turn silver or corrode like brass-plated hardware which can sometimes cause skin irritations and allergic reactions for some dogs.

What is English bridle leather?

Vegetable tanned authentic "English" bridle leather is made from heavy high quality native steer hides and drum dyed for deep, consistent colors with waxes and tallows. It is then hot stuffed with just the right amount of "spew" on the grain and flesh to have that English feel. English bridle leather collars are relatively stiff when new, but with proper care and break-in will become soft and extremely supple, conforming perfectly to your dog's neck and have outstanding durability. Hence, it is an ideal leather to use for dog products and that is why we only use this type of leather.
