  • About Us - Tanner Bates
    oak bark tannery in E Devon Wherever possible I use materials made there In my training we were given the finished hides and taught the techniques of working but there was something missing I needed to know the stage before I wanted to understand how that cows hide ended up as bridle leather on my work bench After relocating to Devon I began a 2 year period of self styled study investigating traditional pre industrial leathermaking techniques I established links with interested tutors at Northampton university and spent many hours in museum libraries I am fascinated at the way we can make leather just from animal skin and tree barks The transformation is alchemy I discovered Bakers Tannery in Colyton East Devon They tan their hides with oak bark from the Lake District in huge underground pits after which the hides are hand finished It s a process that takes almost 2 years and is a far cry from the automated factory production of modern world tanneries Their leather is made in the old way and exactly suits my need for a more primitively produced leather The hides are processed with the minimum of treatments so that the distance between animal skin and finished product is as short as possible so that there can be no mistake that this product was cut from the skin of an animal In my work I select leather that carries the animal hallmarks the stretch lines on the shoulder and the random scars and blemishes In making my products this combination of rich rustic leather my own traditional making technique and the product s contemporary purpose is what fuels my creativity There s an ironic juxtaposition of tradition and technology The hides themselves bursting with character inspired the design of the Messenger and Baja

  • About Our Leather - The smell is amazing!! - Tanner Bates
    throughout the world Tanning is the name given to the alchemical process of transformation from skin to leather Tannin is the active ingredient which traditionally is sourced from harvested tree bark Oak bark is slow to release its tannins making the transformation process about 12 months or more The bark which comes from coppiced oak forests in the Lake District makes a liquor with water from the River Coly that flows beside the tannery The cowhides are steeped in this liquor slowly progressing from mild to stronger solutions The result is a durable yet supple hide with a strong smell of leather From the tanning pit the hides go to to be dried oiled and dyed usually a rich shade of brown All these processes are carried out individually by hand The hand dyeing technique using an aniline dye gives a depth of colour and a random variation across the hide The hides are known as full grain which means that the skin surface is as it came off the cow just without the hair The surface of the skin has not been buffed This leaves all the imperfections that were naturally on the cows skin scars blemishes etc As a result our hides we choose for Tanner Bates products are full of character and no two are the same When comparing our full grain oak bark hides with modern factory produced leather the analogy that comes to mind would be supermarket carrots compared to carrots from your own veg patch Rich with the smell of real leather made in the old fashioned way Tanner Bates products start off fairly stiff and will with time and use becomes supple and even more desirable Russia Kip Leather Making this leather is a slow process taking over 12 months at our tannery

    their leather goods and we wanted to give a shout out and say well done to them Yes leather undeniably comes from animals and in that process they have to die We have always and I think it s true to say will always be meat eaters in smaller or larger numbers throughout the World So as a byproduct of that industry is leather a good thing As someone who eats meat and I hasten to add only free range and organic where available better still road kill I would much rather that the entire animal is being used At Tanner Bates all our leather is a byproduct of the meat industry Not only that but the leather used in our Oak Bark products comes from Devon cows and is tanned in Devon at a tannery called Bakers which uses oak bark as the name would suggest sourced from a small coppice in the Lake district to naturally tan the hides It is the last tannery of its kind in Europe We also use Spanish veg tanned leather that is tanned in Spain using mostly wild deer and goat hides John regularly takes business trips to Spain to meet our suppliers and to continue to build on the relationship we have with these small family run business Not only do we then have a good working relationship with the companies we use but we can also ensure by seeing it for ourselves where the leather we use comes from and that it is tanned using the most responsible methods possible Another tannery we use is Horween in Chicago famous for its specialism in American horse hides Leather working has been part of our heritage for as long as anyone can remember and long long before that too At Tanner Bates
