About Kettering Leather Workshop

I am a saddler and bridlemaker based in Rothwell, Northamptonshire, where my family have been leatherworkers for over 150 years working in the boot and shoe trade.  I am also a Brompton owner and the development of my range of Brompton accessories grew from my love of this iconic British masterpiece of design.  I try to uphold the traditions of British craftsmanship in all my work, and everything that I sell has been hand made by me in my workshop using traditional tools and techniques.

For more information on my cycle accessory range, please visit the Online Shop, and for more examples of my other work go to www.equestrianandcanine.co.uk.  I undertake commissions on a range of projects, and am always on the lookout for new ideas.

Although aimed primarily at the Brompton, a number of items will also be suitable for other makes.  If you are looking for some leatherwork specific to your bike get in touch with me – I am happy to develop ideas and create unique items.
