1 1/4" wide and designed to last a lifetime; from thick, full grain vegetable tanned leather.
This technique, the Mystery Braid, means the leather is fixed at both ends with the leather braided in 3 strips the entire length - it cannot come undone. Belts are hand cut from the hide, assembled with hand-sewn keeper and solid rivets, burnished to form smooth edges and finally sealed with beeswax to add a durable waterproof layer.
From where buckle meets leather till belt tip - 110cm
Because the entire belt is braided there are no traditional notches to secure the belt, instead you can adjust the fitting easily through any part of the braided end. This belt would fit waists up to 36" inches, but if you have a specific requirement of size please do let me know
What is Veg Tan Leather?
The ancient craft of naturally tanning leather is complex and fascinating. Only natural materials such as leaves and husks are used to dye the leather, after which, each hide is hung for several weeks. This is compared to the globally dominant method of Chromium tanning, which reduces the process to a mere few days. Whilst certainly time-effective, it is important to me to try to avoid using chrome-tanned leather, as the vast use of chemicals in this process is very harmful to the environment, our waterways and oceans.
Apart from this being an ethical choice, it’s very much aesthetic and practical – veg-tan leather is beautiful, often displaying the history of life through scars and imperfections. The material will develop a wonderful patina unique to each owner and after years become a treasured object.
