The traditional leather belts from Atelier de Groot are tailor-made for you in our workshop in Harlingen, Friesland, directly by the Wadden Sea. For this we use premium eco-friendly vegetable tanned leather from Germany and the United Kingdom.
We make our leather belts in different styles and widths, from sturdy belts with studs to casual hand-stitched belts. Our belts are made to last and develop a beautiful patina over time.
Atelier de Groot’s leather belts
Vegetable tanned leather belts
Vegetable-tanned leather is leather that is tanned in the most sustainable way possible. The leather has a luxurious, natural look and is very strong. Our belts are durable in both the manufacturing process and in use. The raw materials for the tanning process are made from tree bark, leaves and wood and are renewable. The cowhides from which the leather is tanned are a by-product of the meat industry. This means you don’t only have the best quality leather belts, but you also stimulate a sustainable production process by real craftsmen with a love for the profession. Read more about the production methods of the durable leather belts here.
Our leather belts can be ordered to size, which is accurate to the centimeter. For example, if you have measured your size and arrive at size 97, then we will make the belt for you in size 97. No long extra wrap, but a perfectly fitting belt. Curious about your size? View our measurement instructions page here. Would you like to give a belt as a gift, but don’t know the size? Then give a gift voucher! Just as easy and fun!
