As one of our bestselling leatherwork collections, PS of Sweden have taken the equestrian world by storm over recent years. Not only are their anatomically designed bridles horse-friendly, you’ll be pleased to hear that they are eco-friendly too! This is all thanks to the way in which their leather is produced and vegetable tanned.
At Eland Lodge we’re proud to be a UK stockist of the popular PS of Sweden collection including anatomical bridles, reins, browbands and breastplates.
The leather used in PS of Sweden bridles and leatherwork goes through a process known as vegetable tanning.
Vegetable tanned leather has gone through a natural chemical process (known as tanning), which transforms the raw and unusable leather to a rot-resistant, useful material for the creation of leather goods.
The vegetable tanning process uses dyes and substances available in nature (such as flowers, tree bark, vegetables etc.) to give the leather its unique characteristics and colouring.
It is also important to note that the leather used is a by-product of the food industry, so is using a natural resource that could otherwise become a waste product.
PS of Sweden visit their leather suppliers several times a year to perform quality controls on the materials and production, so you can be sure you’re getting the very best quality leatherwork.
