I have spent many years working with leather and one of the most important things I know about leather is the tanning process and the relationship with the tannery. Since I started this business in 2000, I have travelled all over the globe meeting with and inspecting different tanneries. I look through the plants, inspect their processes and ultimately develop a relationship so that I can have leather made specifically for me and the intended purpose.
The leather that this belt is made from is vegetable-tanned leather and was developed and created specifically for, not only this product, but all our skirting leather products.
This leather is tanned in the UK and the tannery goes to extraordinary lengths to secure the heavy hides that I insist on using. Our leather is one of the most important ingredients responsible for making our products what they are. Without good leather, a belt is just something with a buckle sewn on it. With incredible leather, you get a belt that is amazing, and yes there is a big difference between Something and Amazing.
This leather will develop a patina and has a very unique density with lots of tight fibres. This belt will settle and form to your body shape and is incredibly hard-wearing. There is no doubt that it will last for many, many years.
The colour in this leather is dyed-through in the tanning process and not a finished colour that is put on top of the finished tanned leather.
This is a stylish casual leather belt that is made for everyday wearing, it will take you comfortably from the paddock to the plate or from the boardroom to the ballroom! The perfect all-rounder! - AB
Before products leave the workshop, they are hand finished by Angus and his team with a treatment that is designed to specifically enhance and protect that product. We work to ensure that all Angus Barrett products are ready for work or show.
The Brunett Belt is made from a first grade skrting leather that has been oiled and is ready for you to wear. With use, if the belt becomes dry, we recommend using a surface leather dressing, like the Angus Barrett Leather Dressing, to condition it.
We recommend that you do not use any oil to care for your Angus Barrett leather product.
If the belt requires cleaning, simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth. Please note that most leather products will darken with age, use and after dressing.
If your leather product needs to be stored in a bag, we recommend that you use a breathable bag, such as a canvas bag, not a PVC bag.
