OGL ONLY GOOD LIFE VINTAGE 1.75" HAND-DYED LEATHER BELT BLACK (2016)
OBBI GOOD LABEL VINTAGE 1.75" HAND-DYED LEATHER BELT IN BLACK (1.75" 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 center (back of the animal) of the cowhide, which is the most optimal potion for belts. Using our OGL Black Dye (Japanese), 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).
NOTE: These are unsatisfactory seconds. Products have got markings, scratches, dyeing flaws, slight cuts... etc. But not affecting the durability of the products.
WIDER WIDTH (1.75") FOR VINTAGE STYLE
Inspired from western cowboys in the past, where wider belts are commonly used because most of the trousers featured wider belt loops. We guess it is likely for holding their Gunslinger belts and gun holsters.
