This kind of set is really valuable companion for those who travel and hike a lot and wish to have some essentials with them but still keep their hands free.
This wide belt has holes rounded with metal eyelets so you can hang the bag and few more things on to it (a knife for example). For a buckle there are narrower straps sewn onto the wide belt – this way the buckle stays on the wide part.
Belt can be made in set with the pouch. The set on these photos below has a kind of pouch that can be worn as a belt pouch or as a crossbody / neck pouch with additional strap. Of course it is possible to add any sorts of pouches or sheaths that you would like for your set.
As there is quite a lot of space on the wide belt, it could be decorated with quite big, detailed carved images or patterns. And the whole set could have matching carvings of course.

Making a leather belt
You get to choose the buckle for your belt. The variety depends on the availability in the shops as we do not make buckles. The selection of course changes so we’ll check that together when we have received your order. What you have seen in our photos, that is not any sort of limitation.
We can also use your own buckle. But to make it fit well you need to send it to us. There are some measurements that must be taken from the exact buckle. You may send it by post.
Measurements of the belt
As we make everything by hand, there are no limitations for any sizes or measurements for the width or lenght of the belt. Usually the width of the belt is decided by the buckle but there are other options. For example the buckle for the bushcraft belt has been attached to separate straps that are sewn onto the wider part of the belt. So it is possible to make the belt wider this way.
Sometimes we’re asked if we could make a belt “in men’s size?”
We can also make long belts and we ask for specially longer leather from the tannery for belts. So our possibilities depend on how long leather can we get. Sooner or later it is possible to get long enough so send your requests on the way!
Order hiking belt
In our workshop every item, every smallest detail, is handcrafted. For our crafts we use only full- grain vegetable tanned leather. Your ordered belt will also be made by hand and out of top quality leather.
