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.
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.
