Who are we?

Equus Leather is run by Charlie & Dawn Trevor from the heart of rural County Durham in the UK. Charlie manages the leatherwork and creative side of the business and Dawn deals with the photography, administration and all things that make the business tick. Charlie has been producing leather and bridlework since 1995. Our products ship all over the world, from Europe and the US to the Middle and Far East and Australia.

About Equus

A few words from Charlie 

We are proud to keep alive the traditions of the artisan craftsman. Everything we make is 100% hand crafted by us, using the best materials to create the best products for you. Our items are designed using the skills and expertise of centuries old English traditions to give you beautiful leather goods that will last a lifetime.
We will provide you with a bespoke item - a pleasure to own, to look at, to handle.
I grew up using the leather suitcase that my Grandmother travelled around the world with and my Father, to this day, uses his Grandfather's cartridge belt. We aspire to produce leatherwork that has the same quality and longevity and am proud to produce goods that don't fit with the current ethos of poor quality, low price and disposability of all things.

Our Values

We have never seen eye-to-eye with the current trend of cheaply made products that have a very finite life span, generally of the same length as the warranty period, yet still seem very expensive. In past times people took pride in making and owning goods that would last a life time, in fact would often out last the owner! How many items of furniture, bags or clothes made today last 5 years, let alone 50 years?

We want to make products that fit with the values of a now past generation of craftsmen, where over engineering and pride in product were the prime consideration and profit was a natural result of producing a top quality product.

Our Materials 

We only use the best materials in the products that we make. We use:

Restoration of Vintage and Antique Leather Cases

In addition to the products offered by this website we also restore antique and vintage leather cases for clients and we occasionally have examples of the very best Victorian and Edwardian leather luggage, suitcases, trunks and cartridge cases available for sale.  

Our Guarantee to You 

If on receipt of your goods you are not delighted with them, or you do not feel they live up to our promises or philosophy, please just return them in an unmarked condition and we will gladly return your money and we will work with you to find out what the problem with your item was and if we could have done anything differently to prevent the problem arising. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and any feedback from our customers is listened to and incorporated in future work.
