More Belt Information

Welcome to our sumptuous range of Devon leather belts.

Using low-impact farming methods for the beef herds, these local Devon skins contribute to the reduction in and absorption of greenhouse gas emissions. Cattle fed on grass produce less gas, and grass that is continually grazed absorbs more gases.

This leather is so soft to handle in spite of its thickness. At 5mm (¼ inch) thick, it might seem a little extreme for a belt for a human, but its softness gives it supreme comfort.

Made from Baker’s Devon leather, you can begin to create your own heartwarming story of a favourite belt that can be used by several members, even generations of the same family, and yet more stories of a belt that carries the scuffs, dents and marks of everyday life as it accompanies the wearer through college, relationships, children, pets etc.

Here at TBM we get it. A belt isn’t just a product, it’s part of the family.
