Leather belt

Michael Sans

Made “with lots of love and care” these premium belts are all 100% handmade in Germany by a very experienced professional saddle-maker. Only carefully selected leathers are used to manufacture the items. The Southern German cowhides are 3,2 – 3,5mm thick and – of course – are purely vegetably tanned. Edges are color-treated to provide a long-lasting protection and give the perfect finish. As with the leathers all other materials are very carefully chosen: they use an almost forgotten, extremely durable and tearproof yarn, that had been developed decades ago to accomodate the needs of saddle-makers who would hand-stitch their items. The buckle is made from solid stainless steel. No cheap, plated tin-stuff here.

Available in 3 different sizes (85cm (small), 95cm (medium) and 105cm (large)). This doesn’t refer to the belt’s entire length, but is measured from the buckle to the middle belt hole (so that ideally you’ve got 2-3 holes spare on each side). We believe that they are unisex and can be worn by anybody. The belt is 33mm wide and is available in brown color.
