A range of English made leather belts made in our workshop in Woodcote. All belts are handmade using traditional methods and we use English hide leather so the belts will last for years.
This unique design has been designed in our workshop in Woodcote.
The buckle is secured by 5 single hand sewn stitches with an invisible knot. It is a very old and now seldom used stitch.
All belts are made to measure so an exact fit is guarenteed.
Made from Metropolitan first selection veg tanned shoulder or Veg Tanned Bridle Butt.
Metropolitan - Highest quality and regular shape, vegetable tanned dyed through shoulder treated with waxes and oils to produce a beautiful oily or waxy "pull-up" distressed effect which lightens in colour when folded or turned. The natural grain is left intact to show all the growth marks and unique character to give a distinctive antique look with this mellow feeling skin. If you want a rugged and distressed heavy leather with a "worn in" look, then this is the one for you.
Bridle Butt - Made from J&FJ Bakers Veg tanned Bridle Butt.
J&FJ Baker is Britain's only remaining traditional oak bark tannery. Their unique leather is favoured by distinguished shoemakers & top stables for its quality, durability & finish. The Bridle Butt used for these belts is the best quality leather available.

Hand sewn. Choice of thread colour.
Fixed and a handsewn running keeper. Choice of runner colour.
