The Willow, which has been de-barked leaving this lovely pure white willow.  In time the willow will mellow to a soft buttery yellow colour

Willow is high in natural tannin, and natural preservatives, which is the reason why fishing baskets were made in it.  In the days when people walked considerable distances for a day’s fishing, it was important to keep your valuable catch as fresh as possible, and that the willow did admirably, quite apart from the basket being light to carry

English Bridle Leather is the archetypal saddler’s leather, traditionally used for making bridles and harnesses. Strong enough for a horse, it is overqualified for our range of belts, dog collars, leads and blanket straps

Approx size 27 cm x 32 cm x 20 cm
