Named after one of Shropshire's ancient hills, Ragleth Hill is made of lava and ash erupted from volcanoes around 570 million years ago.
If you're looking for the ultimate handmade bespoke leather apron then look no further.
We design and measure all the details to your requirements and advise on specifics for your individual need. We use the finest full grain vegetable tanned Italian leather to craft an apron made unique to you.
Full grain leather refers to hides that have not been sanded or buffed (unlike top grain leather) to remove natural marks or imperfections on the surface of the hide. This leaves the grain intact with its own fibre strength, durability and attractive appearance. It is the best leather available.
All of the metalware on the apron comes from a English foundry that has been producing high quality buckles since 1832 and holds a Royal Warrant of Appointment.
Additionally to give it that added touch of ownership we offer a complimentary embossing service, where we can add your name or initials free of charge.
The leather is carefully selected from the best tanneries, it is handcut and then skived to enable beautifully turned stitched edges to add strength and stop the leather from curling. The cross-back straps are precisely edged and softened to give the best most comfortable fit and the rear belt has eyelet holes for extra strength and durability, all attached using nickel plated brass buckles made to the highest standard.
Finally the embossed Risdon & Risdon logo is added, so that in years to come it will prove its authenticity of British handmade craftsmanship.
Due to every leather hide being different, each apron will have natural characteristics that are unique to your handcrafted apron.
The apron will feel stiff at first, allow some time for the leather to wear and soften and it will beautifully mould to your shape - it should then last you a lifetime!
