Hand-made in Devon

We make these belts in our leather workshop in rural South Devon using leather from a local tannery, the last of its kind in Europe.

The belts are made enitirely by hand from cutting the strap from the hide to the shaping of the point which we make using a traditional saddlers round knife.



Uniquely Crafted

The leather has a full grain finish which means that every blemish or scar on the cows skin will be present on the finished hide and apparent on the finished product. The hides are dyed by hand at the tannery with an aniline dye. This process allows the grain and all the individual markings on the cows skin to show through. The dye is absorbed into the hide in an irregular way so giving a unique appearance to every belt. No two are the same.

Natural leather needs feeding from time to time (more often in a dry hot environment). Apply a lavish dose of Tanner Bates Hide Food every 6 months to ensure long and supple service. A complimentary tub of Hide Food is supplied with every belt.

Free Personalisation

Personalisation is included at no extra cost. We use traditional bookbinders brass type (24pt Gill Sans) embossed on the reverse of the belt (hidden on the inside). We emboss with heat similar to a branding process so that the text of your message has a dark matt appearance.

Please note that we position our own logo on the inside so that the upright letters are to the left of the buckle. Personalisation will follow the same orientation. Choose up to 12 characters or spaces, upper or lower case.

Love your Leather

Our leather is ethically and sustainably processed. The tannery uses a mixture of tree barks to transform the animal hides to leather. This is an ancient tradition which yields the familiar leather smell. Natural oils evaporate over time and need replenishing. Your leather benefits from and will look its very best if given an occasional dose of natural waxes and oils. Our Leather care information card is included with every purchase.



"The belt arrived I was delighted with the quality and finish. It was everything I hoped it would be. Will last me longer than a life time because I'm going to be buried in it.."
