Traditional English Bridle - J&E Sedgwick

J&E Sedgwick is one of the very best manufacturers of traditional English bridle. Bridle leathers are known to be firm but luxuriously smooth to touch. The white wax on the surface is called bloom and occurs when the natural oils and waxes rises to the surface. It has a tight uniform grain, similar to shell cordovan but with a firm temper. Bridle is a hard wearing leather that patinas beautifully over time.

Available colour: dark navy.

Temper: Very firm
Surface: Dense and uniform, blooms when fresh and a natural shine when polished
Tanning: Vegetable tanned

All of our products are hand made with traditional leather crafting techniques using leathers sourced from the finest tanneries in the world. They are cut, saddle stitched and burnished by hand. Each product will have slight variations from one another due to this hand made process. The leathers we use are full grain which will show variations within each hide. This results a unique feeling between every product.
