Tanner Bates are traditional leatherworkers. Everything you see is made by us by hand in our leather workshop in Dartington, South Devon.
The hand made leather binding is available in Saddle tan or dark brown.
You can personalise with up to 8 letters mixed case.
Each binding comes with 3 books either with plain unlined pages, lines or squares. Refills are readily available from all good stationers.
The Cahier is a contemporary and stylish version of the old fashioned exercise book. Its ivory coloured, acid free pages are stiitched into a buff coloured heavy duty card binding. We make the leather cover from 1.5mm thick semi soft leather which complements the flexible nature of the Cahier perfectly.
The size, 19 x 25 cm size is smaller than and a refreshing change from A4. Bigger than A5, this size is better suited for business meetings, mind mapping, journalling or the next novel!
Naturally tanned leather used in our bindings has that familiar smell of real leather. Only leather made by this age old process using tree barks to transform animal skin to leather has this smell. Modern factory processed leather lacks this very distinctive trade mark.
Tanner Bates products are different. We are hand makers, leather specialists, a small business of 3 makers - all apprentice trained in our Devon workshop. Our roots are in traditional equestrian leatherwork and our techniques and hand tools are the same as those used by saddlers and bridlemakers for generations.
We pay attention to details especially our edges which are sanded, sealed and burnished. This edging detail, which can only be achieved by hand with time and concentration, is only found on traditional hand made leatherwork. This technique and the quality of our leather is what makes Tanner Bates products different from other mass produced and factory made items.
Made from Italian leather naturally tanned in the traditional way with plant extracts.
To care for your Tanner Bates Leather goods apply an occasional dose of Hide Food to keep your leather supple and long lasting. If it gets wet first let it dry out naturally, then apply Hide Food to stop the leather drying out.
