Designer leather worker
John Hagger is the founder of Tanner Bates in South West Devon.
Based in Dartington, John creates beautiful products from a special material called Oak-bark leather. He makes the Herring Oak-bark belt for us and we took a video of the process for you to enjoy below.
Oak-bark leather is made by placing the leather into large pits with water and Oak-bark chippings - no chemicals are used whatsoever. The tanning process then takes upto 18 months. This makes the leather very hard wearing and flexible. The perfect belt material in fact.
Please take a look at John's website to see the other leather goods he has on offer.
"In meeting Adrian, I met someone else who shares my passion for handmade products, just like my Wasdale shoes."
