Smith-Worthington is pleased to announce that the tannery that produces leather for Signature™ bridles and Plus+™ strap goods has been certified for environmental management (ISO-14001) by the British Standards Institute. This state-of-the-art tannery uses safe chemicals that comply with EU and US norms. It has its own effluent treatment plant and will soon have solar panels installed on the roof. (Other certifications include standards for worker safety and quality control.)
Smith-Worthington specifies that only clean, scar-free hides are used for their products. Therefore, it is not necessary to cover imperfections with a painted surface. This leather has an open grain finish, allowing you to oil your tack to keep it in good condition for many years. Tack will become softer and colors more mellow over time when properly cared for.
When you buy/sell Signature and Plus+ products, you can be confident that you are dealing with high quality leather and craftsmanship AND a lower environmental impact.
