OBBI GOOD LABEL BELT DOUBLE-PRONG HAND-DYED BLACK (1" 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).
NARROW WIDTH (1") BELTS FOR ALL STYLE
We cut 1" belt blanks and fitted a subtle-looking oval shape brass buckle, creating a leather belt that can match any styles. Free size (no sizing) is any feature that we install on this design as we thought the 'extra' length drapping down can be a good bohemian look.
SIZING: This belt is free size with maximum length from buckle prong to tip of the belt 47 inches.
From buckle prong to 1st hole is 31 inches, subsequently running 12 holes until 42 inches point.
If you are slimmer, we can punch more holes before delivering.
This belt can fit largest waist of 40 inch.
Note: The leather is strong and tough when new, there will be some difficulties during unbuckling. Will be normal with constant use of 2 weeks.
Leather Maintenance: When new, no leather maintenance is required. Use for 2 to 3 months before applying leather oils/cream. LES TRAVAUX Mink Oil is the perfect conditioner for this belt.
