The following are hand crafted leather belts for our customers who believe in the skilled craftsman more than they believe in sewing machines. Every belt is hand cut, hand bevelled, hand stitched and hand polished. Customers can indicate the widths (eg. 1.5″) and colours they would like to have customised.
