OBBI GOOD LABEL BELT DOUBLE-PRONG HAND-DYED BLACK (1.5" WIDTH)
HAND-DYED ON NATURAL VEGETABLE-TANNED LEATHERS (11OZ)
LEATHER BELT THAT LAST AND FADE
We love natural leather belts, thick and supple, that on first handling, you know it will last a lifetime.
On a 11oz Natural Vegetable-Tanned cowhide leather, we cut the belt blanks from the centre (back of the animal) of the cowhide, which is the most optimal potion for belts. Using our OGL Black Dye (Colour-changing kit), we hand-dyed the leather surface with 3 layers of black. On the edge, we applied OGL Batik Stain and burnished to match the colour of the brass buckle. And finally underside is 'smoothen-out' using OGL Burnishing Solution to create slick and non-hairy surface.
On constant usage, this belt will aged to softer while concurrently the black dye will fade unevenly revealing the aging Natural base leather.
This is a very special aging characteristic that in Asia, we call it "茶芯" (meaning, Tea colour for the core).
SIZING: The sizing selection (S,M,L) are base of flat measurements from end of prong to holes. For YOUR sizing selection, increase 2 inches from your true waist size to cater for its thickness and bend.
A size 32 waist person will fit a M size (31, 32, 33, 34, 35).
