Custom hand tooled leather goods since 1963

Hand Carved Belts

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.
