Belts

Here are a few belts I made over Thanksgiving. The 3rd one is 17 oz. Triple C Harness. The other 3 are Wicket and Craig 14 oz. saddle skirting. One is natural and the other 2 are hand dyed with Fiebing oil dyes. Wicket and Craig is the best skirting I’ve ever worked with, but if you’re looking for a super thick belt that is tough and still supple, Triple C harness is the way to go. Harness leather starts out as skirting and is then stuffed at the tannery with oils, waxes, and tallow. Anyone who has applied oil to veg-tanned leather knows that it darkens the leather a few shades, but Triple C has figured out a way to do this and still keep the leather a nice smokey/natural color.
