Devon-based brand Tanner Bates are master leather craftsmen with a reverence for traditional technique, provenance and heritage. Though contemporary in design their pieces are truly one-of-a-kind, full of character and history and made to last a lifetime. The brand is known for their “specialty leathers,” often painstakingly sourced from smaller traditional tanneries across the UK and Italy, and their leathers are always full-grain, meaning they can bear small marks and imperfections from the animal the hide came from. Their pieces have the intoxicatingly strong smell of “real” leather, achieved through an age-old process of natural tanning using tree tree bark. It’s hard to find leather products constructed with more care and craftsmanship than these.
*Tanner Bates offers free repairs within 25 years of purchase to Buy Me Once customers only, with a reasonable cost of repair thereafter. Does not include general wear and tear, colour fading or damage caused by inappropriate care, at the discretion of Tanner Bates.
From the Designer:
"A customer visited our shop in rural South Devon with a purse he bought 20 years ago in France. It looked well loved, fitting neatly in his hand but in need of replacing. The customer thought they were no longer made and would we consider making one similar. I was intrigued by the design. I don’t like to copy but taking inspiration is fine so I set out to find a way of improving the original. It was complicated and took some time with many cast off prototypes but worth it in the end."
