Ishaor made a version of this on black leather that came out great. I put it on right out of the box and the size was perfect.

Ummmm WOW! This was one of the best purchases and experiences communicating with a designer that i've had on Etsy. I asked the designer to customize the belt to be a smaller width. He got back to me and said that the buckle will have to be different than the one pictured if we alter the width. I agreed, letting him take the lead and deciding what will look best in the end. The belt arrived and wow! I was so excited to give it to my boyfriend. I was beyond proud to be able to gift such a gorgeously unique and masculine well made belt. It will last a lifetime. The craftsmanship is OUTSTANDING. The customer service is EXCEPTIONAL. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. 5 stars and 2 thumbs way up!!!

About

How I came to do what I love and love what I do...

My name is Ishai Duiker, I live and create in Israel and I am the owner, designer and creator of Ishaor.
Ishai was a biblical figure, the father of King David, who lived in the city of Beit Lechem, the same place where Jesus Christ was born. I adopted this name, Ishai, after I came to live in Israel but I was born as Gerrit Duiker in Holland. Duiker, my last name, is the Dutch word for sea diver and I come from a long heritage of Dutch seafarers. This actually led me to my first encounter with handmade crafts. At the age of 10, my father, a captain in the naval fleet, took me with him on a ship he commanded, sailing to the exotic city of Casablanca in Morocco. While walking with my father in the old city, I was intrigued by the craftsmen we passed by and I felt a strong attraction to their work and watched them crafting the leather. It was then I held a knife and a piece of leather for the first time and tried to cut out and curve a creation of my own. It changed my life.

I started working in leather after quiting my job and decided that I want to do something else in my life something that I create myself.
I made some bracelets and a few belts and sold them on Queens day in Amsterdam, where I noticed that people like my creations.
I had never studied professionally or even taken any courses, which is probably the reason that my work, as I am told, seems different from most of the traditional leather wear. I developed by trying my own techniques, used tools and colors according to my imagination and can now say that I now feel I have my own original style.
I use simple hand tools and make each piece by hand out of a large full grain leather skin. I sell my work in some high end boutiques in Israel, and on several platforms online, as well in my workshop in the Florentin neighbourhood of Tel Aviv.
After thousands of sales and 5 star reviews I stand behind my creations, and offer a lifetime guarantee.
My inspiration comes from anything that has a interesting structure,from computer parts to motorcycles, bold, screws.

It took me about 30 years with several turnarounds in my professional life, to return to this constitutive moment in Casablanca, to this first love, and commit to the profession of leather craftsmanship.

Today my products are sold at the Nachlat Benyamin Art Fair in Tel Aviv, on ETSY and in selected fashion boutiques in Israel and abroad. Ishaor’s leather products currently include belts, cuff bracelets and hair barrettes but there are more to come in the near future. All products are designed and crafted by myself including most of the leather belts metal buckles. You’re invited to a virtual tour of my workshop in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG7ieiwJhTk.

As any artist, I enjoy getting feedbacks on my designs from customers but the most surprising and interesting feedback I get are on my logo which I spontaneously created with the initials of my born name, Gerrit Duiker (GD). Apparently, people who see it interpret the shapes and the letters in different ways and actually some of my products are a result of theseunique interpretations which they share with me.

I strongly believe that wearing my accessories lets people express their passion, stand out from the crowd and make a statement about who they are and what they believe through unique colors, symbols, shapes and designs. I hope you’ll find yours.

With Love,
Ishai.

Welcome to Ishaor on Etsy

Artisan of Quality Leather Jewelry, Accessories

I love working with leather. I use techniques I developed on my own, taught myself to work with whatever tools I need and combine colors depending on my specific likes and imagination. The result is a creation of an original style. To this day, I use simple tools and make each piece by hand, starting with a large piece of full grain leather skin. My inspiration comes from anything that has interesting structure, from computer parts to motorcycles, bolts, screws or basically anything with a distinct, unique shape.

My belts are made carefully to ensure they are of the highest quality. With proper care and handling, these belts last forever.

Please read my Info, Refund, Gaurantee and About Sizing down below.

Lifetime Guarantee!!!

I hope I can share my Inspiration with you

Additional policies and FAQs
Some things to know when you make an order:

- I make my products according the information you give me, therefore YOU are responsible for giving me the right size.
- If the belts turn out to be a bit too long, you can shorten them easily and quickly with my instructions. The buckles are connected with screws so you can also swap buckles if you like.

What you need to know about the size is:

For belts:
Figure out the distance between the most used hole and the very end of the belt including the buckle. You can find instructions on the sizing chart in every listed belt in the last of the five pictures.
The belts have the standard 5 holes and from the center hole to the tip of the belt it measures 7 inches.
If you want more than 5 holes, please let me know.

Please don't forget to include the jeans size!!

For Bracelets: it's very easy to measure your wrist size. Tie a piece of string around you arm. Make sure it is not so tight that you feel it, and not so loose that it falls off. Cut the string and hold it up against a ruler. That's you size.

Without getting your size, your order will be delayed. It is the most important detail, so please make sure to give your correct size when making the order. Once the belt is on its way, I can't make any changes!

All Ishaor products are completely handcrafted and colored seperately. This makes every piece one of a kind.
I use premium vegetable tan leather which makes the belts last a lifetime, therefore I give a lifetime guarantee if the belts are used normaly and are taken care of.
I double check every piece I work on to ensure quality, before and after making the piece.
If for some reason you are not satisfied please contact me and I will look into it, and try to find a solution.

Custom orders are welcome, if you come up with a design or color that you would like made. The buckles on all belts can be changed for a different one.

If you have any questions please sent me an email and I will do my best to help you find a salution.
