This leather dressage/show brow band combines black and orange leathers and stitching for a unique statement.
The polished black cowhide main band has 7 diamond punched holes, 3/8" high by 7/8" wide and about 7/8" apart, which are backed with crocodile embossed patent leather that is sandwiched between the main strap and the black lambskin wrapped neoprene padding.
The layers are glued and then stitched with orange thread defining each diamond, and the edge stitching that also captures the folded over end creating the loop. Black thread was used in the bobbin, so thread blends in with the leather on the underside.
The band is 1" wide, and the one pictured has 12" wide diamond stitching, and is sized for Warmblood, and is nearly 18" in total length. Other sizes can be made on request, as well as other colors.
Fine black lambskin is wrapped around neoprene padding, and the width extends about 1/8" on either side of the main cowhide to provide a soft edge reveal, and more comfort for the horse and total 1 1/4" wide strap.
The loop ends leave about 1 1/4" open to accommodate most bridles, but if you need something different, please note in the order--since all of these bands I design and fabricate in my home studio, I have full control over all elements and dimensions!
All edges of the main band are beveled and the lambskin is folded for clean finish.
he headstall loop has been embossed with my o:WILBUR brand, and size stamp inside.
The brow band is presented in a round wooden box, suitable for gift presentation and storage, which has a leather label embossed with my logo and affixed with antique brass rivets.
If you don't want the box, the band can be shipped less expensively...
