Handmade oak bark leather belt
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Handmade using traditional saddlery skills, finished with a hot crease around the edge. The leather from J.&F.J. Baker tannery: the best quality, full grain, oak bark tanned bridle butt. This traditional method of pit tanning leather has almost died out but it produces a leather of unsurpassed strength and beauty.
The natural grain is not corrected by destroying the surface of the leather and applying a uniform finish, as is the case with virtually all leather these days, the weave or grain gives each individual belt its own unique finish. This matures over the years to a rich polished oak colour, showing any natural features, such as scars or growth marks, which give character to the leather.
Solid brass “Bristol” buckle cast in England. Hand stitched with Fil Au Chinois thread, the finest linen thread available. Edges are hand painted. Combined they make a belt that is not only beautiful but will also last a lifetime.
