Leather Belts with Traditional Andean Weavings
One of the nicest aspects of these leather belts is that each comes with it’s own traditional tribal weaving sewn in sections throughout it’s length, making each belt individual and unique.
These woven sections are sourced from original tribal weavings and recycled to make many types of usable item, including garments and accessories like our Andean waist pouches with weavings and other crafts such as tribal statues, wallets and purses.
Many of our leather belts also double as money belts, featuring a secret zipped compartment along the back of the belt suitable for notes and coins.
Choosing Your Belt Size
Belts come in various sizes ( shown in our listing titles ) and vary in small increments.
Regarding the length, apart from waist size, many people wear belts in different ways preferring differing lengths of overlap depending on their style.
For this reason we believe the best way of ensuring a belt will fit, is for buyers to measure one of their own belts from end to end ( including the buckle ) in centimetres and compare it with our sizes which are also measured from end to end. i.e. from the furthest tip of one end of the belt, right to the furthest tip of the other end, including the metal buckle.
This way you can be sure your belt will fit and also have the right amount of over lap for your needs.
If you find for any reason the belt is not suitable when you receive it, you are welcome to return it under our 14 day satisfaction guarantee.
