Custom hand tooled leather goods since 1963
These belts are cut from tooling leathe and then a design is hand transferred with a stylis to the blank leather. The design is then cut with a swivel knife and hand tooled and finished with hand carved finished cuts. In many cases the backgrounds are hand dyed a dark color and then other colors applied to the patterns as required. As with tooled belts, multiple types of finishes are applied to preserve the leather and the dye work.
