Oak bark keychain
Is your other half forever misplacing his keys? Then the Colville Leather oak bark keychain is an ideal gift for him! Affordable and practical, yet smart and stylish in equal measure, this is a thoughtful gift that your Valentine can make use of everyday.
Meticulously handcrafted from the iconic oak bark tanned leather, these keychains are charming little accessories for the modern man. Each one is a little bit of Devon heritage. We stitch our oak bark leather keychains by hand using a traditional locking saddle stitch for durability. We then add a solid brass lobster swivel clip that can easily attach to a belt loop or bag strap, which means no more lost keys.
Available in a choice of three different colours, there’s an oak bark keychain to suit everyone’s tastes. Whether you choose Dark Oak, London Tan or Black, you can be sure your keychain will be crafted with longevity in mind.
The oak bark keychain is priced at £17 and is delivered free in the UK.
Our exclusive collection of handmade leather wallets represents an effortless blend of traditional craftsmanship, timeless styling and meticulous attention to detail. A stripped back version of a vintage bi-fold wallet, The Eddy is an accessory that your Valentine is sure to fall in love with. It may be compact, but it is bursting with character. Simple, stylish and sophisticated, it is the perfect gift for the discerning gentleman.
The Eddy offers plenty of storage, whilst still being able to easily slip into a pocket or bag. It can hold up to eight cards and some folded cash, and even more if you choose our new three-pocket option. It is ready for daily use thanks to its strong saddle stitch.
Hand-dyed leather belt
A Colville Leather hand-dyed belt makes the perfect complement to any man’s wardrobe. A classic leather belt, it is the ideal present for your hard-to-buy Valentine. This versatile accessory makes a smart finishing touch to a range of outfits, and can be worn for any occasion. He can team it with smart trousers for a formal event, or with jeans or chinos for a more casual ensemble.
We pride ourselves on using only the finest quality vegetable tanned leather hides for all our products, and the hand-dyed belt range is no exception. You can pick from a range of four colours, with a solid brass or stainless-steel buckle. As these belts age, they develop a patina unique to their owner, with hues that alter with day-to-day use. Carefully crafted to become a loyal companion for years to come, a hand-dyed leather belt will last for decades, acting as a long-lasting memento of your love.
A hand-dyed belt is priced at £59, with free UK delivery. All Colville Leather belts are custom made to size, so be sure to follow the sizing description exactly before placing your order. Check out our handy how-to guide for some useful tips on belt sizes.
If the man in your life is a keen writer, budding businessman, or simply lives by to-do lists, our Voyager notebook cover is a special handmade Valentine’s gift that they can treasure for a lifetime.

There’s a handy pen holder on the front cover, as well as space for some credit cards or business cards.
There are seven leathers to choose from with this charming journal cover. Whether you go for the ‘au naturel’ option of the natural hide, the earthy tones of Horween Derby Nut Brown, or the warming Tan hue, you’re guaranteed a beautiful leather accessory.
