30th Anniversary Russian Reindeer Leather

 

 

 

THE END OF THE LINE - THE FINAL RUSSIAN REINDEER HIDE AND THE LAST CHANCE TO BUY A WALLET MADE FROM 200 YEAR OLD RUSSIAN REINDEER LEATHER

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary this year of The Great English Outdoors - we have produced a small range of limited edition Wallets

The wallets are made using some of our famous 200 year old Russia calf leather. This amazing leather was discovered in a shipwreck off the coast of Cornwall in 1973. We were one of  the few people selected to work in this amazing leather. The supply of this leather has now sadly come to an end but we thought it fitting to commission this range of Wallets in the last of this leather in conjunction with our 30 year Anniversary

The release of these special Wallets is also to in celebration of our early roots, The Great English Outdoors originally started as The English Leather Company in Cirencester, England - where Athene English - a newly trained saddler -  began her saddlery business. Moving to Hay on Wye - Athene diversified into other areas of interest such as  textiles - and changed the name of the business to The Great English Outdoors to reflect the broader range of products in the shop in Hay on Wye.  English is in italics as a play on Athene’surname - the shop stands proudly in Wales and is as well known now not   only for its original leather goods but also for the large collection of antique Welsh  Blankets and Antique Tapestries, World Textiles and beautiful but useful objects for the Home and Garden made from natural materials
