A little bit about us
Our Master Saddlers Qualifications are City & Guilds. Bridle Making level 1, Bridle Making level 2, Bridle Making level 3.
Our Master saddler/Qualified saddle fitter Started working as a shoe repairer for the prestigious firm, Archibald’s of Glasgow many years ago. As the shoe repair trade drifted from traditional quality repairs to the “while you wait” type of repairs he felt it was time for a change.
He moved to Walsall to become a saddle maker starting his training at the Walsall college. After this he began working as a trained saddle maker for E.Jeffries, Silhouette Saddlery, and Sandringham Saddle makers. In his love of the leather trade he continued attending night classes learning book binding, and more about the light leather goods trade making handbags briefcases etc.
What our customers say…
“Had an amazing day making stirrup leathers with George. Very rewarding – learning how to select, cut, trim, stain, hand stitch & finish the leather.”
Thank you George for your brilliant skill and patience with me and Charlotte on your stirrup making course.
