Many things in life get better with time - a SILLEKNOTTE product becomes part of who you are while taking on scuffs and memories of your everyday life. I believe that the products I create should last for many years – a lifetime even – carried and used daily, mirroring a unique and individual lifestyle.


As its name implies, harness leather has strong equestrian ties. A sensational leather with a smooth surface, it’s noticeably strong and quite firm. Horse lovers appreciate its versatility, as the ideal leather for all kinds of accoutrements, such as saddlebags, straps, belts and, of course, harnesses.


High quality vegetable tanned harness leather is matched with simple forms, accentuating fine details, a high level of craftsmanship and the natural beauty within the material. Using traditional leather working tools and techniques, every item is handmade, the final product being as much a result of instinct as it is of education and history.

The name

The name Silleknotte derives from a south-Danish dialect – from my grandmother Marie Petrine. She loved to watch the horse races and always chose a favourite horse. She would call that horse Silleknotte. Whether it lost or won, it was still her favourite. 

SILLEKNOTTE is first and foremost the story about my love and passion for harness leather. With a creative and modern approach, I endeavour to create a renewed interest in harness leather and the hand-made product.
