All non-stitched belts are made from single strap of heavier 8-9oz leather, utilizing the bend of a side for extra strength, durability, and just simply to get the necessary lengths. Usually I work with 1″ widths for dressier and women’s belts (as the loops on many womens pants do not allow for wider belts) and 1 1/2″ for stronger utility belts that have a bit more of a traditional western cowboy influence.
Some belts are hand tooled with geometric patterns, while others are done up with more specific designs such as flowers and leaves in the sheridan style, or with symbols and imagery from pagan and eastern cultures and even hand drawn original designs. Other belts are left more simple with just color and sometimes a nice bevel to sharpen it up a touch.
Finished belts are as is, but anything can be custom ordered and tailored to suit the wishes for these one of a kind heirloom pieces that are designed to last a lifetime of wear and abuse.
