We visited John at the Tanner Bates work shop yesterday in Dartington who is helping us to make some leather belts. Picking up some Italian belt leather, hand tools and fittings John couldnt help but enthuse with some valuable know how also. Passion and knowledge abounded further as we talked about the different leathers he stocks including some incredibly rich coloured Horween Cordovan and English Bridle leather that was in the workshop. We also checked out the nearby High Cross House which was closed but always worth a walk around the outside anyway.
