General info

Modern technology has been harnessed to the traditional skills and craftsmanship of the leather industry, providing a top quality chamois leather product with a personal customer service. Based in Sawston, just seven miles from the famous University town of Cambridge in Eastern England and 50 miles from London, our tannery dates back to 1645. We distribute our chamois leather and other products around the world, through agents, distributors, wholesalers and direct outlets, depending on the territory. 

Today Hutchings & Harding continues to excel as a tannery for chamois leather, skiver leather and pickled grains. Our main activity remains the tanning of selected sheep pelts from around the world – exactly as it was when first established over 100 years ago.

We have a pride in our product and service that enables us to claim with justification 'the world's finest chamois'.
