The Grouse Belt takes its inspiration from a favorite upland sport, Grouse hunting. This bird does not reveal itself, she is camouflaged in plumage perfectly suited to blend in with her environment. The graphic for this belt is our tribute to the wonder of nature which is the grouse feather.
The foundation of this belt is a 1.5" wide, full-grain, American-tanned, Natural Brown Chromexcel leather strap from the Horween Tannery; one of the oldest tanneries in the US. The building process begins with a full side of leather which is inspected for quality upon arrival at our shop. After inspection, the belt straps are then hand-cut from the best portions of the hide.
Each strap is sized, punched, and cut one at a time. Webbing is then stitched to each belt strap and paired with an antique brass roller buckle, matching snaps, and a hand-stitched leather keep. The grouse feather graphic has been sublimated into the webbing here in the USA. It will retain vibrancy and detail for years to come.
