The Bakers London Tan Bridle Leather Belt
The Oak Bark tanned London Tan from Bakers is a rich, warm colour with depth, subtlety and complexity of character. It is a true full grain aniline dyed leather meaning it will age to a the warm, rich honey brown of the true traditional London colour and each piece will be as unique as the cow from which it came. A warmer and deeper colour than the Sedgwick version and with lots of character, somewhat variable due to the hand aniline dying and tanning process.
The surface of the leather exhibits a very pleasing natural grain and the very long tanning process (up to two years) makes for the excellent longevity, flexibility and strength characteristic of Bakers leather. The smell is clean, fresh and characteristic the of oak bark tanning.
The range of buckles and widths this belt is available in via the drop down boxes below, from 1" to 1 3/4" wide in a range of increments, metal colours and styles gives a lot of scope to get just the belt you want and includes our best selling buckle styles, but we're more than happy to use any of our other buckle choices available if those available below don't include the style you want, just let us know when you order the belt if you'd prefer a different buckle.
Our aim when we selected this leather was to make a belt for the connoisseur who wants not just the best quality available, but also leather with a wealth of character and history behind it that is made in the same way leather has been for hundreds if not thousands of years, untainted by modern shortcuts and industrialisation. For an in-depth look at the process of tanning the leather has gone through we highly recommend you have a look at this excellent short item by the BBC.
