Bespoke Leather Design For Horse, Human, Home After a successful career in theatre, brand, design and marketing, Mia Sabel left the City and trained to become a saddler. A Queen Elizabeth ScholarshipTrust (QEST) Scholarship enabled her to expand on this training and augment her range of skills, products and services...
... As SABEL Saddlery she now combines traditional saddlery techniques with high-quality materials to create both classic and contemporary, off-the-shelf, personalised and bespoke leather products. A background in design gives Mia, now a Qualified Saddler, the insight to develop innovative products for both business clients and consumers.
