Bringing together old world craftsmanship with contemporary styling, our luxurious Morocco Leather Belt was designed using Eco-friendly natural cattle hide, and is finished with a hand-cut, hammered tin buckle. This women's accessory item showcases an uncommon leather "tanning" process that creates beautiful finishes in gorgeous hues. This chic silhouette also draws attention to its' bold weaving that serves as a fashion element as well as a visual statement.
Our Morocco Belt features a stylish wide belt band that is well recognized in women's fashion accessories. The band has a double strand, basket weave that spans the entire length of the belt. The tongue is finished with an escutcheon shape tab. The hand cut tin buckle is fashioned like a Spartan shield and displays a hand hammered surface with roped edging. A vegetable "tanned" finish adds distinctive character to this versatile accessory piece that complements coordinating designer jeans, knit pants, or even a classic pair of leggings, making it a wonderful addition to any fashion smart wardrobe.

Our stylish Morocco Belt features a textured surface effect that is achieved by a labor intensive artisan "tanning" process that renders the belt as an original one-of-a-kind item, where no two belts are physically alike except for conceptual design. The imperfections embodied in the belt are the result of that unique texturing process, and are part of the beauty afforded by this refined leather artistry, thanks to the heritage of expert craftsmen who use old traditional recipes to "cook" the cattle hide. The surface texture here maximizes the visceral character of the belt. The hand craftsmanship used to construct the metal buckle also adds an "old world" quality to the overall complexion of this unique fashion piece.

Materials Content: Cattle Leather and Tin
Leather has been renowned for centuries as a valuable commodity, often associated with practical articles of utility, ranging from military armor to home furnishings. Origins of leather clothing date back to prehistoric times suggesting that crude hides were used for protection against the elements. First forms of leather "belts" (as opposed to cloth, or rope, "sashes") date back to the Bronze Age, and have since evolved into fashionable accessory items for women.
Our Eco-friendly leather belting is first prepared from natural cattle hide, then vegetable "tanned" into a flexible, but stable material, then finally "crusted" for softness. Our leather here is further finished with a surface coating, providing a "glaze" quality that is both protective and visually appealing. The buckle is made from hand-cut tin, hand hammered, then beautifully tarnished with an acid wash.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Avoid contact with water. Clean with a reputable leather cleaner and conditioner. Air-dry for a couple of hours before wearing again. Many dry cleaners offer professional assistance for stain problems on leather articles. Store your belt away from excessive heat, light and moisture.
