Description The real beauty of the saddle is the way the leather top fixes to the frame. To date leather saddles have always been riveted to the frame which required specialist skills to repair. Gilles has replaced the rivets with custom chamfered allen key screws which slot into brass washers which are inddividually engraved with his name. The top front fixing washer is individually numbered so your saddle will have its own identity. The rear fixings are placed at the back of the saddle leather so they will not damage your clothing. This fixing system allows anyone to remove and replace the leather top quickly and easily if required

The leather is treated with naturally occurring dyes as oppposed to environmentally harmful chemicals to give a quality finish. The leather is hand softened to be comfortable from the outset, reducing the riding in time relative to other popular leather saddles. The leather itself is cut using a very expensive five axis CNC machine and creates saddles that are thicker than any other available. Gilles built his own testing machine and found that his saddles will outlast existing leather saddles many times over

going to be in London?

I went away to help family last Easter but got stuck in the first lockdown. I was intending to spend time in both places but it is a long way so a block of time in each place. We had got a routine sorted but lockdowns and tiers keep putting a spanner in the works!
I am now back in London and plan to be here till the end of April.My trips south get very booked up with repairs and I fill orders for customers. This time I also have jobs left over from my last trip south which was shortened by lockdown. This also affects my sending out orders.
When I know them I will put updates with dates on this website.
Thank you all for your patience.
