The belts are 1.25” wide, with a steel or solid brass buckle, hand stitched with natural linen thread, and punched with oval holes at 1" spacing, normally six in total, with the specified size being hole number 3.
The buckles may vary depending on stock at the time of order. I will contact you before starting to make your belt, to confirm the buckle that you want, at which time you can cancel the order for a full refund if I don't have any buckles that you like.
You generally need a belt that is 2” bigger than your trouser waist size, but the best method is shown in the diagram above. Please specify the belt length that you want when you get to the PayPal checkout. I will contact you in any case to confirm.
The belts are custom made, so please allow up to three weeks for delivery, though it is often less. Belts are sent via Royal Mail Recorded Second Class, or International Signed For.
Please let me know if you don’t see a width or colour that you want, or if you have any other questions.
This leather is a joy to work with. The tanning process retains much of the character of the original skin. Unlike mass produced leather belts with a bland, uniform surface, the natural marks and scars the cow had in life are visible, and make each belt completely unique. I get to know every square inch of the belt, in the several hours that it takes to make.
These belts are hand made from traditionally tanned bridle leather, from J & FJ Baker of Devon, the last remaining traditional tanner in England, on a site that has been a tannery since Roman times. The finest quality hides are prepared using English oak bark, in a process that takes over a year to produce the leather. They are thick, strong, and packed with oils and waxes. This leather is gorgeous – the smell, feel, and look are amazing.
