ARIZCROW LEATHER

Arizcrow Leather is a small business in the heart of the New Forest England and a Proud Member of the NEW FOREST MARQUE! 

Jo is a New Forest Leather Crafter that uses traditional British saddlery methods to design her hand crafted leather goods.

Inspired from The New Forest’s Wildlife, History, Folklore, and today’s modern Forest life…

I source materials from the New Forest and incorporate them into my work, Such as New Forest Spring Water for mixing my dyes and paints, New Forest Tartan, Toggles and Buttons made from Tree’s of the New Forest, Deer antlers tips , and Bee’s wax for my threads etc

Plus Stones, fur and feathers I’ve picked up along the way …

I design and make hand crafted quality leather items from my workshop, but often venture further into the New Forest to finish off leather work whilst enjoying the views and having a chat with the ponies and wildlife, plus a chance to do some photography for future leather work inspiration …

You can also visit my FB Page ‘Arizcrow Leather’, where you can view my work and follow my travels through the New Forest.

I also have an ETSY shop where you can buy one off items

Every Item is Handmade from scratch, unique and nothing is ‘Mass Produced’.  I use the traditional ‘Saddler’s Stitch’ which, unlike machine

stitching, employs a knot within every stitch so if one stitch goes, the rest won’t follow! I only use strong, quality hand stitching waxed thread on all my work.

Leather is a Natural product and any item / product will never be totally identical

I use a variety of leather, from British Bridle, Italian Bridle, Veg Tan, Oil stoned, Suede, & Soft Nappa.

The 2 main materials I use in my leather work are :- New Forest Tartan and  Harris Tweed.

For Dog Collars / Leads or Sets Please message me to Order.

A little about me …

I have trained using Traditional British Bridlework methods by Master Saddler Mr D May Cumbria School of Saddlery UK

Art & Design at Salisbury College Wiltshire UK

Self taught Hand Tooling Leatherwork

I have owned horses and ponies and enjoyed showing them in my earlier years, and the past 30 years has been spent enjoying my dogs, both in and out of the show ring …   for me, quality leather products was a must… so I decided to take up leather work and make my own… And from that I progressed into making a variety of Unique Leather Items which now has become my passion and a successful small business selling here in the UK and over seas.

I Use Royal Mail First Class ‘Signed for’ Delivery for UK and Worldwide orders

Being a small business I do everything myself from cutting lengths of leather from, sides, butts and shoulders and craft and design it into your item… wrap… package…  and pop it in the post for you.

* Please allow up to 28 days for dog collars and leads and 4-8 weeks for custom work  as I can get very busy at certain times of the year due to Events.

* Ready made items I post out withing 2 -5 days.

My priorities are strength, comfort and style, I pay great attention to detail both for appearance and quality… I will only use top grade English and Italian Bridle Leather and the best Veg Tan leather sourced in the UK for all of my work and solid brass hardware whenever possible, I will never use cheap hardware as I hate flimsy fittings.
My aim is to produce top quality Bespoke Leather Items at all times.

You can also find us at Events – Craft & Country Fairs / Dog  & Horse shows / Rallies & Events in the South of England with our Trade Stand, so do come over and say hello…

Thank you for visiting my website!
