Studio D'Artisan Bend Cowhide Belt (Kakishibu)

Size Guide

Classic SDA workmanship with a zesty twist! 

Constructed with a heavy belt buckle and screw-down rivet fastening, this is a serious piece built to last more than a lifetime. From the tapered tip, bevelled edges and teardrop eyelets, SDA have put their attention to the details to create a true Made in Japan standard belt.

To make for the most solid, hard-wearing leather strap, SDA has chosen to use Benz leather. It will maintain its shape very well with long-term usage, unlike other belts that will warp and become less aesthetically pleasing. The famous 'Kakishibu' dye is made from Persimmon fruit and creates a rich, dark brown tone with an orange hue. With time you'll see the inner core appear with a brighter colour, just like biting into a ripe persimmon!

If you're keen to get a serious standard belt for long-term usage, go for this!
