The strapping on our King picnic blankets is made from high quality 3mm traditional English bridle leather.  

Bridle leather has both the flesh and grain side of the leather stuffed with greases and finished with wax. This is generally a labour intensive process so only the best grades of leather are treated like this, as it would be uneconomic to treat poor quality leather in this way.

We use this thickness of bridle leather as it strikes the perfect balance between being flexible enough to easily wrap around the product, yet sturdy enough to ensure it lasts a lifetime if cared for properly.
