Moore Leather specialises in traditional bespoke leatherwork, utilising English saddlery techiniques to ensure that the hand-made goods produced are made to the highest standards possible.
All goods are totally hand-sewn with appropriate threads, blunt needles & awls and constructed using a wide range of task-specific tools, most of the tools really being museum pieces due to their age.
Part of my varied workload involves interpreting the better features from several older designs & incorporating them into an exciting new product.
Most of my products are directly related to either country sports or historical based pursuits and interests. Some older items can also be repaired and/or renovated.
Other products offered are museum quality replicas of otherwise long extinct designs (based on contemporary catalogues, drawings, photographs, etc.) plus I can reverse-engineer older leather goods to reflect how they would have looked when newly made.
Moore Leather has also supplied goods to TV & cinema production companies, national museums, bespoke gun-makers, sword & knife makers and many individual buyers and collectors worldwide.
Moore Leather sources leather from old tanneries within the UK - some of which have been on the same premises for over 500 years!
As well as normal vegetable tanned hides, Scottish deer-skins are used, plus ostrich & ray-skin are also an option for some bespoke pieces.
Whether you are after a custom made belt, a bespoke pouch for your mobile or PDA, a one-off Sporran as a gift or to wear for a special event, a knife scabbard, rifle sling, cartridge "Gannochy", an arrow quiver, a dog lead & collar or a briefcase; Moore Leather can ensure that you get the product that best suits your needs.
