Oakside - Traditionally Made by Hand
Handmade in England
All Leather Belts from Oakside are painstakingly made by hand. The leather is cut and prepared by hand by a Traditional Cordwainer (Me!) Craftsman. All stitching is also carried out by hand using the time-honoured skills of the classical saddler
Each leather belt is unique in that no piece of leather is the same. The scratches, scars, and other marks from the cow all go in to making your leather belt as personal as you. Your leather belt is made to order for a bespoke service not seen nowadays. Size, colour, and stitching all reflect your distinctiveness. Variances in stitch pressure, thread thickness, cut, and leather all go towards creating a one-of-a-kind original.
Designed to last! Solid Brass, Stainless Steel, and Nickel fittings, waxed linen thread, and top grade English Bridle leather, all go towards ensuring your leather belt is long-lasting, durable, and above all dependable.
I have just started to use Sedgwick & Co Bridle Leather from the Clayton group.

Each hide is traceable throughout the entire process ensuring the quality that is required of a perfect bridle leather.
