Each Ray Mears leather belt is handmade from a single piece of supple, fine quality British bridle butt.
The vegetable tanned leather is hand-dyed to Woodlore’s Rich Brown colour and shows all the beauty of its full natural grain which is further brought out by the dark brown hand burnished, bevelled edges and traditional crease lines. Three rows of hand-stitching using a braided polyester thread secure the heavyweight, solid brass buckle with roller and two leather loops keep the free end of the belt in place; one fixed at the buckle and one free-running.
With 12”/ 30cms of adjustment these belts were originally designed to be worn over outer clothing in cold climates to trap warm air but can also be used with your outdoor trousers and jeans. If you are intending to wear your belt over outer clothing or want the option to, please order one size larger.
Cut from the length of the butt the thick leather is strong enough to lash things together or be used as a knife strop and will become even more supple over time and with use.
Embossed with the Ray Mears Bushcraft logo, this very special item is exclusive to Woodlore and hand-made in-house by a craftswoman with over two decades of experience.
