English Bridle leathers are some of the highest quality vegetable tanned hides. They are drum dyed for color consistency using waxes and tallows. The drum dying process achieves a deep, rich and consistent color throughout the hides. Bridle leather was originally used for horse bridles due to its weather resistance and durability. Today, it is also used to make fine leather goods like bags and belts. It is also great for strapping, holsters, and the equine industry.
