Description: - One Finest Quality Traditional English pit tanned bridle butt Buffed Finish
Size: - This bridle butt is approximately 67" long and 25"1/2 wide.3.5 mm thick.
Colour: - Colours Available: Black - Havana - Dark Stain - Australian Nut - New market - London Colour - Russet (Natural) Please Choose and Add to Basket
Sizing Guide: - Approx. 11 Sq Foot 3.5mm - 4.00mm Thickness (Standard Bridle Weight)
**Note** - Dressed using traditional methods and materials to give extra tensile strength and longevity.
- Other Thicknesses Available upon Request
- (2.0 - 2.5mm)(2.5 - 3.0mm)(3.0 - 3.5mm)(3.5 - 4.0mm Standard Bridle Weight)
Additional:
  • Please be aware that all sizing is approximate  due to the nature of product .
  • The long tanning method has changed little in centuries. The raw hides are soaked in lime where the hair is loosened as the pores open.
     While still wet the remaining hair is scraped off before the hides are placed in the first of the handler tanning pits. The hides are moved by hand every week for three months into progressively stronger tanning liquors.
  • In the first few weeks, when the hides are in the weakest liquor, they need to be moved about, or handled, to ensure an even permeation of tannins.
    The hides are tied to poles attached to frames.
    The frames are connected to the waterwheel and the hides move to the ebb and flow of the river Coly. After this the hides are ready to be placed in layer pits, where the hides rest in the thickest of the tanning liquors until they are ready to come out for drying and rolling.
     In contrast with the speed-tanning of chemical methods in which the natural weave is lost, this traditional method preserves the natural weave and ensures long lasting materials.
