Stoerens, is Frisian for ‘Tough’, and that’s what these belts are! Exclusive, casual belts made of vegetable-tanned leather in a very nice vintage look. This style calls for wide belts of 4 cm and 4.5 cm, with hand-stitched details, sturdy studs and/or the keepers’ loop made of ostrich leather or fish leather.
Types of Stoerens belts
We make Stoerens belts in different designs, colours and widths.
You have the Stoerens belts with a hand-stitched detail on the tip of the leather, which is a real bestseller. We make these 4 cm and 4.5 cm wide and, in the colours, black, dark brown, dark blue, cognac and olive. The Italian roller buckles are a great finishing touch.
Studs & different types of leather
Real eye-catchers are the studded belts, contrasting stitching and ostrich leather straps. We also make these in a width of 4 cm and 4.5 cm and in different colours.
Studs & multi-colour
The Stoerens belts with studs, finished with strips of leather in a contrasting colour or pattern, are the latest from Atelier de Groot. We also make these in different colours with a width of 4 cm and 4.5 cm.
Of course, we make your belt to fit you exactly. Not sure what belt size you have yet? View the step-by-step plan for measuring your belt size here. Would you like advice before making a purchase? We are happy to help you; contact us.
Years of wearing pleasure
For the Stoerens belts we use the vegetable tanned leather of Gerberei David Schmid from Germany. The French quality buckles in a Zamak alloy are a great finishing touch. We make these belts in small amounts in a traditional way in our workshop in Harlingen, Friesland.
