a reversible double faced waist belt, cut from a butter soft 2.3mm vegetable tanned culatta leather, with a visible layer of subdermal cordovan. the matte black leather features an array of grain and scarring to give some depth to the bag. culatta is a special cut combined of the rear just above the cordovan, the belly middles and the hind shanks, offering a dense structure, tight grain and firm temper.
the belt features a large hand forged iron sickle to the front which acts as a secondary fastening for easy removal. The sickle is covered in a layer of forge scale that will slowly flake away over time, ensuring a constant evolution of the hardware, creating an array of rusted nuances that will in turn react with the leathers vegetable tannins.
four double layered deconstructed panels feature a slight taper from the front to the rear and are hand stitched with our adaptation of the overlock stitch in a 0.75mm hand waxed japanese leather thread.
the versatile belt is soft to the touch allowing for easy of movement when worn and can be worn with the subdermal cordovan panels on the exterior or flipped for a more formal occasion.
a hand forged double button fastening in either a culatta leather or .925 oxidised sterling silver are attached via a noose method ensuring that the interior button is pulled flush when the exterior button is fastened to avoid discomfort. the unique button fastening allows for the button holes to be visible on the exterior or wrapped round the interior.
