This is a rich 1.75" wide, hand carved, heavy leather belt tapering to 1.5" buckle and billet ends. Finished in an elegant, Medium Brown Antique over Dark Brown paisley pattern with tooled edge border on both buckle and billet ends. Edges are burnished to a smooth Dark Brown and the tooled, hand-sewn, meander pattern keeper is 3/4" wide set between two, solid brass, Texas Star, screw back conchos attaching the 2.25" x 3.0" trophy style buckle. This 38" custom order was made to go with the young lady's trade marked, vintage Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser) buckle discovered in a Phoenix, 7th Avenue, Melrose Area shop. (The buckle of course, cannot be duplicated short of locating another.) This belt was cut from a 10-11 oz. Hermann Oak, single side of vegetable tanned leather as was the keeper.
The paisley pattern was hand sketched and will never be duplicated, at least not in my shop. This is a one-off item hand made in my Coolidge, Arizona shop.
I can happily make a similar, though not identical one of these to your specifications in any size, any colors. Send me a sketch, photos or ideas and we can discuss your design. Discussion is always welcome, free and does not constitute a commitment to buy anything. This particular belt required more than nine hours to design, size, carve, dye and finish, though I admit to not being a race carver.
The dyes and finish are water based, environmentally friendly materials.

We guarantee all GRIT COMPANY products including custom orders and will refund the purchase price in full should you be less than pleased upon receipt of your item. We can't however, promise to re-make a custom order that has been returned (which has so far never happened). Our agreement to remake an item would be predicated on the reasons for dis-satisfaction and determination of our ability to understand and meet your expectation. Expectations are sometimes difficult to communicate and it is entirely possible for us to misunderstand what it is you really want. We do our best to take responsibility for these sorts of circumstances. Custom work always requires good communication between customer and shop - it goes with the territory.
