Our specialty is offering a complementary made to measure service for all customers wanting to purchase dependable, strong, hard wearing dogwear, saddlery and other leather accessories. All of our products are entirely hand crafted and hand stitched, made from Uk sourced materials and using only the best English leather from the best tanneries in the country.
Vaux & James is led by Sean Vaux. Sean has been around horses since a very young age; his interest was encouraged by Uncle Alf who had owned and worked with horses and ponies his whole life. At 11 years old, Sean bought a donkey, Rosie. After purchasing an old harness and cart for Rosie, Sean set to work on restoring the harness and cart, mentored by Uncle Alf... and so began Sean’s passion for horses, driving and leather work.
Sean & Rosie
City & Guilds qualified, Sean is a very talented saddler and although Vaux & James is a relatively new venture, Sean qualified as a saddler over 15 years ago. Since then he has gained a reputation for his high quality workmanship, attention to detail and being a bit of a perfectionist! His real passion is in hand bridles and harness work. Sean is also a keen dog man and loves all lurcher types. This has led to Vaux & James specialising in making bespoke English leather lurcher collars.
We are also able to repair and alter all types of saddlery and leather goods, along with saddle re-flocking. All of our products are HANDMADE from ENGLISH bridle leather and HAND STITCHED. Not a machine in sight!
