Our supplier, J&FJ Baker, runs Britain's only remaining traditional oak bark tannery, on a Devonshire site that has been a tannery since Roman times. Oak bark tannage is a long, gentle process that protects the natural fibres of the hide, drawing out the unique qualities in its surface. J&FJ Baker treat only the best local hides, in a sustainable process using natural products. It takes 14 months to produce each piece of leather, each of which is hand finished with a special blend of natural oils and greases to emphasise the grain and colour of the hide. This leather is not just a pleasure to use, with a beauty to behold, but it also stands the test of time.
