Superior quality and superlative performance
positions Albion in a class of its own

The Albion Brand Story

Started in 1985 by Paul and Sherry Belton, the Albion England brand was originally born out of a desire to pioneer a truly premium range of equestrian competition saddles, bridles and accessories which exceeded all expectations.

Albion’s (meaning ‘Old England’) guiding principle is simple, to always deliver a supremely superior quality product, blending traditional values and artisan craftsmanship with revolutionary innovation and state of the art technology. At the heart of Albion’s success is the tremendous pride the company takes in producing beautifully handcrafted country lifestyle items, which embrace the best of British design combined with carefully honed skills and processes that have been passed down through the generations.

Although Albion remains heavily committed to its equestrian roots, the brand has evolved to extend its core values to the creation of an exclusive portfolio of luxurious leather accessories especially designed for the shooting fraternity, with every product boasting the distinguished effortless style and extraordinary efficacy that is synonymous with Albion.

After realising the potential of applying Albion’s undisputed heritage for exceptional quality to other country pursuits, the natural way forward was to establish a stronger lifestyle positioning for the brand. The roll out of a carefully chosen selection of exquisitely designed lifestyle products to satisfy the aspirations and intrinsic desire for items of distinction as demanded by the discerning Albion customer followed. Currently the range includes luxury candles, timeless handbags and clutch bags, stunning silk scarves and stylish umbrellas – with further exciting additions planned.


Specialist Sporting Products

The specialist Albion Sporting division was created in 2011 when Annie Belton, alongside fellow director Fin Green, identified the significant potential to keep the strong Albion brand values alive in a new collection which capitalised on the renowned close links that exist between avid equestrian and shooting enthusiasts. Albion Sporting provides an exclusive portfolio of luxurious leather accessories, with every product boasting the distinguished effortless style that has become synonymous with Albion.

Just like Albion Saddlemakers, a dedication to excellence permeates throughout the Albion Sporting business, necessitating a meticulous attention to detail and an ongoing resolve to work with only the very best materials to guarantee outstanding quality and the creation of a truly exceptional product.

The relentless drive for remarkable quality, superlative performance and inimitable design flair continues to place Albion in a class of its own.
