Handmade Luxury Leather Products

Bridle Leather

Bridle leather is a vegetable tanned cowhide, hand finished with beeswax, tallow and fat. The tanning process uses only natural products. 

The vegetable tanning process, using traditional methods is long and slow to produce high quality leather.  GLENROYAL products are produced using only the highest grade of Bridle leather.

A white bloom often appears on the surface of the bridle leather.  This is an effect of the tallow, wax and fat hand worked into the leather during  the dressing stage of the leather, and is your guarantee of a high quality hand finished bridle.  These ingredients serve to preserve and protect the leather.  The bloom can be easily turned into a high sheen by buffing with a clean soft brush or rubbing with a clean soft cloth.

Producing these characteristics has the happy coincidence of creating beautiful classic and enduring good looks.  When combined with a leather that is not only beautiful to look at but natural and safe to use every day, it is a combination that is not, in our opinion, surpassed elsewhere in the leather trade.

Leather Maintenence

If your leather becomes stained you can improve the appearance, by carefully wiping with a clean cloth and then allowing to dry naturally away from direct heat and when fully dry applying some Dubbin.  Brush gently and polish with a soft cloth so that the leather keeps its beautiful appearance for a long time.

We supply a small tub of Dubbin with all our briefcases and folios.

Colour Range

We have endeavoured to match the product colours as closely as digital images will allow. As our products are hand made using a natural product no two items are exactly the same. Bridle leather has natural tones and markings which are unique to each individual piece.
