This handmade solid leather belt is crafted from a single piece of thick, quality full grain Italian leather, and dyed in your choice of finish. Each belt features an intricate design along its entire length featuring Elder Futhark Runes (the language of the Vikings), arranged in the pattern of the three ættir (called the "rune ring" when arranged in a circle). When the belt closes around you, it closes the rune ring with you in the centre, bestowing the benefit of each individual rune upon you.
This is the wide belt width of 1.75", which will fit most jeans in North America, but you definitely should measure your belt loops to confirm they can accommodate it, especially if you are in a country that uses metric or if you intend to wear it with dress pants.
The buckle attaches with snaps, so that you may swap in your own custom belt buckle should you wish.
The black and brown versions are made from a softer leather that is drum-dyed, meaning that they are dyed all the way through, making them highly resilient against scratches and marring. The other finishes are crafted from a slightly tougher, more durable leather, but cannot be drum-dyed, and thus are nude leather on the interior.
SIZING - Belt size is NOT the same as pant size. Generally for men, it's approximately 2" to 4" up, but the best way to determine belt size is by measuring an existing belt. Measure from the base of the buckle (where it meets the leather) to the hole you are currently using. This is how belt size is defined, so if it measures 38", you need a size 38 belt.
NOTE - As our items are made to order, please allow time for crafting prior to shipping.
NOTE - As leather is an organic medium, and the dyes we use are natural, the colour of the final product may vary somewhat from the photography, and that colour may evolve with time.
NOTE - Our leather has good fibre structure, so may be a little stiff at first, but regular wear (and leather oil) will soften it considerably - this choice of a firm leather is deliberate as it allows for maximum durability and longevity.
NOTE - If you need a size outside of our standard size range, we may be able to help! Just contact us to check in about the availability of suitable leather.
