Our products are made from natural materials, the way a hide takes tanning and dyes varies from skin to skin. While we make every effort to match colours, and textures, this cannot be guaranteed. Products may vary in minor details from illustrations in the catalogue or web site. If you want a specific feature included (for instance, a bag fastening), please state when ordering. Small scars or other marks on leather are acceptable – this is a natural product.


Most of our products are made by hand to order. Belts are normally despatched within seven days, other goods within twenty eight. These times cannot be guaranteed, as often we depend on deliveries to and from a very remote area subject to severe weather. If delivery is likely to be delayed we will let you know, giving you the option of cancellation.

We use first class Royal Mail post, Standard Royal Mail parcel delivery, or international standard Parcelforce Airmail as appropriate. Please specify when ordering if you require anything else. Delivery is charged at cost.
