Braiding Material Source List

The art of braiding is unique compared to other leatherwork disciplines, such as saddle making. Braiding requires an investment in two pieces of required equipment, a cutter/beveler and a splitter. The smaller hand tools, materials and hide preparations are less expensive in comparison.

Those of us who work with leather ultimately develop a list of materials best suited for our specific needs and products we have found dependable meeting our performance expectations and standards.

We believe quality materials produce quality items thus we continually search for excellence in the materials and products we choose.
