Leather & Suede:
All our leather and suede comes from the Swedish tannery Tärnsjö garveri. The art of vegetable tanning leather is thousands of years old. Since 1873 Tärnsjö Garveri has been using time-tested, vegetable methods. Industrialization has allowed tanneries to offer standard hides at lower prices and many tanneries have unfortunately chosen that path. Tärnsjö Garveri have not. Why? Because the aesthetic of vegetable tanned leather is unparalleled and the patina that it develops with use over time cannot be produced any other way. It is also the only way to produce premium leather of desired quality, while at the same time respecting our environment.
If you like, you can get your initials embossed, either just in the leather, or with a gold or silver foil. The belts are embossed by a local book binder in Majorna, Gothenburg. Contact us if you want to know more!
Get the correct length:
To get the correct length, we suggest measuring a belt you have used previously. Measure between the hole you use and the outer edge of the buckle, include your buckle as well. Bare in mind that some belts are a bit stretchy, ours aren't. That means that the length could be slightly misleading when measuring a stretchy belt un-stretched. Do you catch our meaning? If you are confused or concerned, contact us and we will figure it out together.
You can also measure your circumference to get the right length. Remember to measure outside of trousers (that will add some extra centimeters) and to adjust the height you want, the hips and abdomen often have different dimensions, for example.
We always strive to send your finished belt to you within two weeks of your order. We are working as fast as we possibly can, without compromising on quality. Our key focus and main goal is always to make a belt that lasts a lifetime, that can be fixed if it breaks - and that looks amazing. That takes time. The actual production time for each belt are 7-8h. In addition, there are other aspects such as glue to dry. We will keep you posted during the process and let you know if it takes longer than expected.
