Brown Leather Belt
This item is from our partner, 2nd Story Goods, who creates jobs to employ community members at a livable wage. They are building a company that benefits the community and the people who live in it- fostering hope, wonder, dignity, and connectedness.
These belts are made with 3 layers of Leather, locally sourced. The outside piece is a full grain dyed leather. Full grain means you can tell it was hide of an actual animal that roamed around and got scratched and had wrinkles. It is lovely!
The middle piece is there for support. Unseen but extremely important for the integrity of the piece. Like so many unseen things, don't you think?
And the third piece on the inside is Split Leather. This gives it a softer more comfortable feel and makes the belt pliable.
The three pieces are then put together with a bonding substance and then sewn around the perimeter of the belt using a foot powered treadle sewing machine for best control and strength. Also helps to use these machines where electricity is sometimes difficult to come by!
The holes are hand punched one inch apart and fitted to the Nickel plated buckle. Two rivets secure the leather that loops through the buckle to hold it in place. The size is stamped in the top inside flap of each belt.

"The rule of thumb in finding the perfect belt size for men is to add 2-3 inches to your pants size to cover for the extra material in clothes. Belts usually have five holes, and it is sized to the measurement of the middle hole."
