    How to care for your leather | Belts & small leather goods

    Made with love and made to last. But only with a touch of care.

    From bags to belts to small leather goods, leather will naturally develop a unique patina over time, creating a cherished leather good that lasts a lifetime. Despite this, superficial marks and general wear can disrupt the natural process. Which is why you should follow these simple rules to promise leather that truly gets better with age.

    STORE WITH CARE

    Keep leather out of the rain and do not store it in damp or humid environments, as this will ruin the hide and encourage mildew to grow.  It’s also important to avoid direct sunlight, especially when storing your belts. If left in the sunlight for long periods of time, the rich patina of your belt leather could fade, leaving you with a discoloured shade of what it once was.

  2. Our Language of Leather

    Our Language of Leather

    No strip of leather is the same as the last. That’s for certain. But the language you read and hear in regards to leather can be far less so. Our mission is to sustainably manufacture the finest leather goods, and it always has been. This means we invest time, money and a lot of human resource into crafting quality items using materials sourced from certified tanneries.

    Choosing a British Belt Co. piece also means choosing the skill, care and expertise that comes with three generations of leather work. A lot of our technique remains the same, but we are forever learning more and more.

    So, here’s a little peek into our language of leather, the leathers we use and why we use them – just to clear up any queries or uncertainties.

     Many of us will be sad to see the balmy British heatwave go, but those struggling under the sun will hail the arrival of cool air with feverish delight.

    The Great Escape: Essentials You Need This Summer

    Just when we thought spring wasn’t making an appearance at all this year, Britain’s just about pulled it out the bag. The tail end of April brings with it a mini heatwave, causing sun seekers across the country to jump into summer mode. Whether it’s a touch of wanderlust or the burning desire to hop on a plane ASAP, the UV rays have something to answer for.

    If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably already booked your sweet summer escape. Multiple escapes, even. You’ve done the research, parted with cash and secured the ultimate getaway. Soon it’ll be time to jet off, and we have just the thing to aid a smooth airport experience.

    Because even though we’re told it’s all about the journey, not the destination – we’re sure this perspective doesn’t apply to holidays, especially when it comes to airport terminals. We understand the nightmare of baggage reclaim. We understand the panic
