“Handmade belts from the best and most sustainable materials; that is our motivation!”

- Jan Gerhard & Martha de Groot

Pure craft

Handmade leather belts

Atelier de Groot makes custom-made leather belts with attention to detail. All belts are made by hand using traditional techniques in our workshop in Harlingen, Friesland. Our belts are made of the very best sustainable materials, unique and timeless. Years of wearing pleasure guaranteed!

Sustainable leather with a story

Family business Atelier de Groot started in 1965 as a shoemaker. The second generation de Groot, son and daughter Jan Gerhard and Martha, have specialised in making and selling handmade, durable quality belts. A craft and a passion that has been passed on! For example, the handmade leather belts are still made with traditional leather processing techniques in our workshop in Harlingen. For this, we only use premium, environmentally friendly and vegetable tanned leather from the United Kingdom and Germany! Read the whole story here.
