If we could source quality leather in we'd be happy to use it. Bridle leather has a fairly narrow number of colour choices on the whole, much more so than calf tends to, so for our bridle leather ranges we're limited by what our tanneries make.

Glad you like them :-)
There are a few others that have and will continue to patinateBakers London TanBakers RussetThere are also lots of watch straps here, if patina is your thing (it is mine) the Barenia and the Oak Brown are amazing leathers and probably make our best watch straps.

Keep watching this space though, they will appear! The leather and other raw material sourcing is done - just need to fully develop our patterns.These are the prototype card cases that were being talked about a little...
