Saddler & Co

SADDLER & CO is an Australian brand synonymous with fine leather craftsmanship. Each design embodies an aesthetic of simplicity and practicality, while integrity is an essential part of each product formation. Saddler & Co leather goods are designed and made in Australia, released in small batch collections.
Founded in 2010 by saddler and creative duo, Bede & Jemima Aldridge, the brand now encompasses a thriving team of artisan makers situated in the western plains of NSW.

Saddler & Co is a small family business, and we currently work from our Dubbo workshop situated in the central west of NSW. Bede Aldridge has been working in the saddle making business for over 12 years and opened his own workshop in 2010 where he manufactures his original custom saddles and leather goods.

The Saddler & Co brand developed from our dream of keeping the old trade of saddlery alive and a belief that hand crafted, personal service will never go out of fashion. Our saddles are designed to provide not only a satisfying ride but also become a treasured piece of the rider’s history. We take inspiration from the art of saddle making so that our leather products gain their signature style from the traditional methods used in their craftsmanship.

In the creative process of designing our patterns, we seek to ensure products that bear the Saddler & Co brand are functional for modern day use while maintaining timeless appeal. We do not outsource our own brand of leather goods, and Saddler & Co products are made in our workshop by hand, in small quantities. We love to work with other Australian artisans and choose to actively support our local business community.
