Hello again and welcome to this Bumper Newsletter, full of news of what is happening in The London Tanner workshop! It contains details of New Products, Christmas Delivery Times, and Tips on Cleaning and disinfecting your leather, so read on…

It has been a while since we last sent you a newsletter so I hope this one finds you all safe and well.  Times are difficult for everyone, but never fear, The London Tanner is here to cheer you up with some fantastic new items that are being added to the website this week.  With Christmas just around the corner, I am sure you will find something wonderful to gift, or just treat yourself from our online shop.

The Tenderizer

This incredible implement was inspired by a request I had from a customer, who wanted a custom-made item.  The shape of it reminds me of a carpet beater and it will surely tenderize any bottom it comes into contact with.

It is made from two layers of our heavy Oak Bark Tanned Leather and these are hand-stitched all the way around.  The handle is built up into four layers, just like The Prison Strap in our Domestic Discipline range.  The paddle has eleven 10mm holes for a more intense sensation.

The Tenderizer measures 18.5 inches in length and 6.5 inches wide at the top. It is something I am very proud to add to our London Tanner collection, as I hope you will be too.  It is available in Rich Tobacco Brown or Old Black colours and is priced at €269.  Get yours here >>> The Tenderizer.


Pocket Set 2

Our first Pocket Set has proved to be very popular and so we have decided to add a second set.  These are smaller implements and ideal to carry around in your pocket or handbag.

It incorporates a mini paddle and a mini tawse – each one measures 10 inches long and 1.5 inches wide.  Made from a single piece of 5mm thick leather, they are by no means gentle.

Keep them handy in the free handmade bag that they will come in.  A perfect Christmas Gift!

The price is € 119 for the set. Get your Pocket Set 2 Here.

Some more great news!  Gift Cards are now available.  So, if you are not sure what to get for that special someone this is the ideal solution!  Available in varying amounts, it will be sent directly to your email for you to download and give to whomever you choose.

Tips on Cleaning and Sanitizing Leather

Just a quick explanation on keeping your leather clean and sanitized against COVID-19, as I have been asked this question and it is important.

  • The key with leather is to clean gently – do not use bleach or alcohol, as this will discolour the leather
  • Simply use hot soapy water and a soft cloth to wash the surfaces.  The soap and heat will be enough to get rid of the virus. Leather generally doesn’t like water, so use a very hot, damp cloth (don’t soak your leather in water!).
  • Soon available: The London Tanners Leather Milk and Cleaner. You will read about it in our next newsletter.

More information on leather care can be found HERE.

Last Dates to Order Before Christmas

Finally, if you are ordering a gift for Christmas please ensure your order is in before 10th December to ensure delivery in time.  With the Covid19 pandemic, obviously, some deliveries may take a little longer than expected so order as early as you can.

Nothing says Happy Christmas like a spanked bottom! 

Thank you all for your continued support and I do look forward to seeing your photos on social media – be sure to tag The London Tanners so we can share!
