Bentleys hosts new label Mews London and their chief craftsman Matthew Payne for London Craft Week.
Mews London is launching their first collection at the event – a range of luxury leather dog accessories, handmade in Devon using locally sourced Oak Bark tanned leathers. The collection is available to purchase exclusively at Bentleys.
Mews London has chosen materials of uncompromising quality. J & FJ Baker & Co Ltd were selected for their leather, the last bastion of Oak Bark tanning in the British Isles. This ancient technique, unchanged after hundreds of years, ensures both a rich patina and unbeatable strength due to the chemical-free tanning process.
The collars and leads use cast brass buckles and fittings, copper rivets and natural threads designed to withstand the strength of a horse, let alone that of your treasured companion. Matthew, a master harness maker, has created a product designed to last a lifetime.
Matthew demonstrates his expertise with an open workshop, with the opportunity to discuss and place bespoke orders.
Mews London was founded by Tim Bent and Giles Greenwood, two lifelong school friends united by their belief in British leather craftsmanship. Tim’s shop, Bentleys, is famed for its vintage leather goods and Giles has spent his working life immersed in the luxury goods industry, most recently at James Purdey and Sons. Committed dog owners, both have family Dachshunds: Beano, Dino and Sauro.
Visit the shop to see Matthew at work, chat to Tim and Giles and discover the Mews London collection.
