Making of an Equus Lined and Raised Belt

See our work at The Bridle Leather Lined and Raised belt is one of our oldest and best known designs, a belt entirely made by hand, that is made for and with a love for craft more than any other motive. Each belt has around 1000 stitches, depending on length and represents a day of work for the craftsman who makes it. Whilst the design is simple in its conception, it takes years to develop and refine the techniques necessary to make one and a single slip at the wrong moment can destroy a days work, making this a true test of the craftsman's skill, nerve and patience.

Leather Crafting - Making an iPhone Wallet

► Use code "YouTube" for 15% off our Leathergoods! ► Follow Us On Instagram: Leather Crafting - Making an iPhone Wallet I got a new iPhone so I decided to make myself a new wallet out of natural vegetable tanned leather. I recently purchased a very nice set of irons from Crimson Hides so I decided to unbox those and use them for the first time making my iPhone wallet! The design is fairly straight forward with the body being made from a single piece of leather, and a pocket. I made sure to punch a hole for the charging cable so that my phone can charge while it's in the pouch - a design detail I first started using with our iPhone 4 case a few years back. The iPhone Wallet is made from 4oz vegetable tanned leather with threads sent over by Crimson Hides. I really like the thread - it's a good size for the diamond awl-shaped holes that the new stitching irons make. Overall the piece turned out really nice!

The design and creation process of the Lloyd Coat wallet has been a long one. Based upon the design of a 1950s wallet owned by Charlie's (our Creative Director) Grandfather, the first and most important part of our job was not to spoil the beautiful lines of the original, but to bring the design up to date, the original having been designed in a world before credit cards or other such things. A design on paper isn't the end of the story though, and the complex shapes and construction had to be brought together into a single beautiful object, with each element adding to the form, as well as the function of the finished piece. The result is a traditional wallet, the largest in our Lloyd series, but sharing the same beautiful curves that run throughout. Each one takes more than a days work to create, with every stitch meticulously done by hand, but we hope as a result will be passed down the generation as was the original the design is based on.
