Brass Peace Sign buckles and leather belts!

Seattle, Washington | 92 Sales

Announcement    Please pay attention to sizing instructions, each belt is custom made to the size you order! To measure for the exact belt size: while wearing your favorite jeans/pants, feed a tape measure (preferably soft tape measure) through the belt loops. Order the belt size that matches the measurement. This measurement will be the center hole on your new belt. You will have two holes on each side of the center hole to accommodate your pants/jeans that are worn at different heights on your hips/waist. Because belts go around your pants, not just around your waist, a properly fitting belt will be different than your waist size or pants size.

About MyPeaceBelt

From Nancy Bradley, the designer and founder:

The History: College in the early 1970's meant studying, meeting people, and experiencing life with the hippie generation. Peace was THE goal of the era. A talented leather-working friend crafted for me a fine leather belt with a heavy brass buckle in the shape of a peace sign. Over the decades, that belt has stood the test of time and is in perfect shape today. My daughter, about to head off to college, asked to inherit My Peace Belt, and off to college the belt went again. Peace never goes out of style.

In a quest to find a replacement for My Peace Belt, extensive searches yielded no buckle of similar quality. The idea was born to re-create a buckle from the original. The talented folks at Mystic River Foundry, LLC were willing and able to try, and after many months of work, the buckles are perfect. We source the hand crafted belts from a few local cobblers and leather-workers in central Connecticut, and all are made individually with each buckle added.

We have been producing and selling hand crafted belts and buckles online since 2008
from the Bradley Barn, the family home in Killingworth, CT. It is actually a converted 1800's horse stable, so using saddle and harness leather for our belts was an easy choice! Also, our son Doug and his wife Chelsea are working to expand the business online from their home in Seattle. We love and wear our own belts, and we hope you do too!
