Our Leszner 1900 FULL GRAIN LEATHER belt is made from 4mm butt leather and is 40mm wide. It’s probably the only belt you would ever need and want to wear. Made out of toughest and sturdiest lvegetable tanned leather is very robust and will take a lot. We hope that it can be enjoyed, as all our products, by many generations. If you’re looking for a perfect belt to fit your RAW DENIM jeans or you just looking for crème de la crème when it comes to quality – this item is for you.
It is entirely handmade. We hand stamp our signature and the individual number of each piece. After, the edges of the leather are burnished. In line with our philosophy, each piece of brass hardware is then applied by hand. Before shipping, every belt is hand polished with our in-house produced leather balm and packaged into a all natural, signature cotton bag.
The width of 40mm fits most informal trousers and jeans. We use only solid brass buckles to ensure the longevity of our belts. This version uses a center-pin bbelt buckle which does not only look fantastic, but is a very secure and snug fit.
All of our products are made from natural full-grain vegetable tanned leather. As they are all natural, each belt will patina beautifully over time making no two pieces the same. This ensures a truly unique, handcrafted item.
We place great emphasis on the quality of raw materials from which we manufacture our products. We do not use synthetic materials. This applies to the entire production process, from the manufacture of the product, through its finishing, maintenance, confectioning and packing to shipping. Our products are manufactured with a view to future generations. We believe that the combination of traditional handicraft methods, natural and the best quality raw materials with modern technologies allows our products to become an intergenerational, heritage good.

Our leathers are products made according to the same methods for over a hundred years. We only use bovine vegetable-tanned leathers without the addition of chromium salts. This is a noble process that only natural products are used for. This method allows you to get a natural texture on both sides of the skin. In contrast to chromium, the surface of the skin is not homogeneous and free of irregularities. If you’ve ever wondered why age-old leather products age in a very noble way – it’s thanks to this method. It provides very nice patination and a characteristic sound of squeaking when bending. Vegetable-tanned leather is its most unique variety and guarantees a natural, uneven colour. We use hides from Polish tanneries, which we use in three different thicknesses depending on the product (4 mm, 2.5 mm and 1 mm) also in versions mechanically (not chemically) softened where needed. To ensure the highest quality pike we choose in person in the tanneries headquarters with more than a century tradition.
Our fittings are carefully selected to match the quality and style of our products. For our products, from 2019, we use only fittings made of pure, cast brass. They are always the products of the highest quality, often from small-sized producers or manufactures who are still working according to pre-war rules and antique equipment. In the future, we plan to cast our own fittings, according to our designs.
