Discover why Walsall became the British leather goods capital in this fascinating working museum, housed in a restored leather factory.

For two hundred years Walsall people have been making some of the world's finest saddles and leather goods. Walsall Leather Museum seeks to celebrate this great tradition and reflect the achievements of the leather craftsmen and women of Walsall.

Dog Collar MakingIn our atmospheric workshops you can watch skilled leather workers in the process of hand-crafting leather goods such as wallets and purses and perhaps have-a-go yourself. The displays around the museum tell the stories of the Walsall leather trade and feature splendid examples of local craftsmanship past and present, including saddles made for the Royal Family and exciting contemporary designs.
