All our belts are individually hand-beaded & stitched by the Maasai women in Kenya, using the best quality dark brown leather and hand-cast brass buckles.
Belts are 4cm wide apart from 29"-32" & 32"-35" Waist sizes in Bright, Earth, Sky & Pastel colours which are 3cm wide.
Pls always add 2 inches to your actual waist measurement to find the right size of belt. For example if your waist measurement is 32" choose a belt that will fit a 34" waist.
The Maasai have for decades beaded necklaces & wristbands to tell a story of the wearer, their social & marital status, age and key events in their life such as children born.
Every piece is individually handcrafted using high quality and hard-wearing leather and hand-cast buckles & clasps.
Each belt takes on average 2-3 days to produce. The beads are hand sewn on the first layer of leather, with a second layer of leather glued & sewn to the back for neck softness & durability.
The Maasai women are given total free range to express their artistic flair on each and every design, to encourage and safe guard the integrity of their culture. This is the beauty of our product offering and our wish to avoid mass produced identical products. As such slight difference in design is to be expected.
As with all Scott's of London products the quality is second to none.
