This is my 3rd HipNotion Belt but, my 1st heavy duty one. I'm hoping this one will last longer although, my other ones did last a year which is much longer than they plain thin cotton material many others use. I'm hard on them working in animal emergency and am willing to buy one once a year if needed. Thanks for the great quality!

About

HipNotions Tool Belts LLC, Tool Belts for Everyone Else

I, Betty Ottesen, owner of HipNotions Tool Belts LLC, started my sewing career making clothing, doing alterations and designing window treatments. Back in those days I called myself "In Stitches". Thanks to a supportive husband, I worked out of our home raising three children and a cat. Then fast forward, the kids grew up, married and two moved back into the area. My son-in-law helped set up my first websites. My daughter photographed the models with tool belts. Then she moved away and my other daughter moved back into the area to start an upholstery business out of my large workshop. We now have each other to share in the dynamics of creating with fiber and working with customers. I also need to mention my husband who helps with his carpentry and electrical skills to keep our work spaces well lit with large cutting tables and other work surfaces.

The tool belt idea began with a question. Why should only builders and carpenters have a wonderful assortment of tool belts? Why have sewers been deprived of such invention? Around 2002 a sewing prototype was born. Other people saw it and wanted one. Research into patent or not to patent was done. Business plan was written. Yes, after all these years of sewing a plan was made! Thanks to the wonderful discovery of the Internet there was a vehicle to make this venture profitable. Even better a place called Etsy that put HipNotions out to the world in 2010 with one lone item, the Basic 8 Pocket tool belt which later sported a removable velcro pin cushion to become the Sewing tool belt.

As time went on I soon found myself designing tool belts with a diverse population of professionals. They included nurses, EMTs, veterinarians, managers, display artists, wait staff, hair stylists, gardeners, dog trainers, educators, sales associates, surveyors, language coaches, event planners and engineers. Many prototypes and designs have never seen the light of the website. I turned into a cereal designer. It was too much to handle. It was time to rein myself in and stick to basic black and the core designs seen here in the Etsy shop. In 2016 I had the good fortune to find a manufacturer in my home state to begin helping to keep up the inventory . No order was too small for them. This will free up time for more marketing, sales and custom orders.


The fabrics and add ons have also evolved over time. The first tool belts were made of medium weight cotton canvas, a fabric my home sewing machine could handle. In 2015 a heavy duty industrial sewing machine was purchased capable of punching through cordura nylon. The nylon can better stand up to the daily usage of so many of my customers. Both fabrics are offered on the smaller tool belts.

ABOUT THE HIPNOTIONS TOOL BELTS

The tool belts are made of 100% cotton duck canvas or heavy duty Cordura nylon. At this time all belts, buckles and edging are in black. A new polypropylene bias edging which is way sturdier than the previous cotton bias. Adjustable web belts are made of polypropylene 1” or 1.5” black webbing with side release buckles.

Welcome to HipNotions Tool Belts for Everyone Else. Tool belts for people on the go at work or play. HipNotion's Tool Belts protects valuable electronics, minimizes stress and the tools gone missing frustration and the bulging pocket syndrome! And because these tool belts are designed to wear on the hip they work great for sitting, kneeling or bending as well as for standing or walking.

These designs represent many hours of collaboration with customers. The tool belts were planned or designed around the tools of the trade which is their namesake. Never mind their names but rather consider what you would want to carry in your tool belt and look at the detailed measurements in the tool belt descriptions.

Shipping is immediate if there is a quantity of more than one in the listing. If the listing reads one quantity that may be the last one or I may be still working on more at this time. This would mean a delay in shipping.

I now have the nice problem of keeping up with inventory and so changing designs or the color of fabric is not available at this time. The exception would be in the case of ordering 12 or more of that design. Contact me for more details or questions.

Thanks for stopping by.
