Buy a Leather School® Belt Kit as a Gift and let us personalise it for you with the name of the lucky recipient. – Handmade by …..

You can now make your own belt without hammering rivets or doing complicated stitching. At Leather School® we have devised a technique using a really strong braided thread to fasten the buckle and keeper. We supply the leather for belt and keepers cut to length with holes in the right places, a buckle made out of solid brass or stainless steel, lace, and enough edge treatment and finishing wax to give you a really professional finish.
