I thought the Batman logo would look cool on a leather buckle, but I wanted to give it a bit of a twist, so in addition to leaving part of the hand-tooled logo the natural color of the leather, I added a stitch line of thick hemp thread. The area around the logo is dyed dark brown and the buckle is stitched together with brown waxed thread.
I have been doing custom leather work for 16 years. All of my buckles are constructed out of vegetable-tanned tooling leather and are hand-tooled and hand-stitched by me. These are not pre-cut kits, which tend to be of flimsier, thinner leather. I cut out the leather for each buckle myself.
After my buckles are assembled and the edges are slicked, I add a coat of oil before the final sealer, which gives both the dyed and natural portions of the leather a richer tone.
THIS IS A MADE TO ORDER ITEM. Your hand-made buckle may vary slightly from the one pictured. Please allow up to 4 weeks for construction after your purchase.
