Each one of these belts is individually made to order by hand in Lancashire from natural and strong UK oak bark tanned leather.

The Natural, Brown and Black colours are made from 5mm thick bridle leather. The other colours are made from 2 to 3mm thick leather that I dye. Please let me know if you'd like the thinner version for Natural, Brown and Black.

The buckles are solid brass, cast in the Midlands, England.

The belts are available in three widths: 1 inch, 1.25 inches and 1.5 inches.

The oak bark tanned leather is made in the only remaining oak bark tannery in the UK. The ancient process uses oak bark harvested in Wales and up the road in Cumbria. The oak trees, typically about 10 years old, are coppiced in late spring when the sap is rising so that the bark can be easily peeled from the trunk. Coppicing is the art of cutting hardwood trees down to ground level and then allowing them to regrow naturally. An old and sustainable method of woodland management. The stripped timber is then used for furniture making, charcoal production and other coppicing crafts.

I cut the leather and either dye each belt a colour or leave natural to develop its own colour and patina over time. The buckles are then hand-stitched to the leather, the edges are bevelled and smoothed, and finally the belt is oiled and waxed.

Please let me know your waste size in cm or inches so I can make the belt to fit. I'll add a few holes either side of this measurement to make sure the belt is comfortable.

If you have your own special buckle that you'd like me to use instead of mine then please contact me. I'm happy to make belts with these.

I also make belts from standard British leather at a lower cost:

All my products are made by me in my small workshop in the northwest of England, UK. I sometimes have a lot of orders on my waiting list so if you want something individual then please allow 2 or 3 weeks for me to make and post it. When you place you're order I'll be in touch soon to let you know when it will be ready.

Please feel free to send me an Etsy message if you've any questions or would like something a little different.

Why not add my leather balm to your basket too, to nourish and protect your leather so it last for many more years?

I received my notebook cover a few weeks ago and I'm absolutely delighted. I waited a few weeks to review as I wanted to ensure the quality beforehand; I can now happily say it is exceptionally high. The stitching is neat and hardwearing.The edges have been finished well - there is no roughness. The colour (in terms of saturation, trueness to the website photo and durability) is rich and durable - I've bought items in the past in which the dye has worn in a few weeks or has rubbed off onto other things in my bag. I also asked for a few extras when I was ordering, such as my initials stamped on the strap, a custom size and extra stitching- Tony's made a wonderful job of it. The debossing on the strap is crisp and deep and the custom size fits my day diary perfectly. I'm absolutely delighted with it. Thank you Tony!

I requested a custom book cover, and everything from the communication to the final product went perfectly. I ordered leather products from Etsy before, but they were often rough around the edges and very flimsy. However, Tony's iteration is nicely finished and just oozes quality. The leather is very thick and nicely finished around the edges (which takes additional time). The cover I ordered has more of a robust vibe to it (which I wanted) but I'm sure you can specify what you like. Overall my best experience on Etsy for now!

Mr. Morgan was very prompt to reply to my ? and made me exactly what I was hoping for. The items seem very well made and a great value. I very much hope he offers 1 3/4" belts someday which I could use for work.
