Although Vogt Silversmiths offers a wide variety of hand tooled leather belts that appear in our catalog and on our website, we understand the appeal to have a tooling pattern and color combination that is your very own. The quality, detail and durability of our hand tooled leather belts is found in the selection of leather and the craftsmanship that goes into the tooling and assembly of each Vogt hand tooled leather belt. As with the tradition of our silversmiths, many of our leather artisans have learned this artistry and craftsmanship from their ancestors – and the tradition continues.
When one is able to understand the time and artistic skillfulness required to hand craft each Vogt belt it is not hard to understand the value behind each piece.
As with our catalog items, each Vogt Silversmiths custom hand tooled leather belt is dyed, dried and hand cut from top quality, 7/8 oz. saddle leather, tooled by hand and lined with a top grain lining leather.
The hides selected for our hand tooled leather belts are vegetable tanned, often referred to as “oak-tan leather”, submersing the leather in a solution that contains natural tannin that preserves the leather creating a surface that can be hand tooled and stitched. Once the hide is prepared a “blank” is cut to create the width and length of the belt – this is the canvas by which the tooled pattern will be carved. Through a series of five to eight steps the pattern comes alive on the leather canvas.
The lining is then shaped and glued to the belt base, once the adhesive has cured the edges are precisely trimmed and the belt is ready to be stitched. Our hand tooled leather belts are single or double stitched, depending upon the style and design to assure the integrity of the belt. Several of our styles use a buck-stitch or whip-stitch to create the accent of a hand stitched belt.
A Vogt Silversmiths custom hand tooled leather belt provides a utilitarian purpose that we can all appreciate; however a custom hand tooled leather belt can be an even more personal statement of your Western lifestyle at a cost that is merely 10-15% greater than a catalog item.
Vogt Silversmiths offers a wide selection of styles including a 1 ¼” -3/4” taper, 1 ½” – 1” taper, 1 ½” straight and a Ranger Style 1 ½” wide with a ¾” billet, however a custom hand tooled belt can be created in any width and taper. When building a custom hand tooled leather belt, one may select from a number of colors including a traditional russet, saddle brown, black, chocolate and two-tone combinations. Additional colors can be requested depending upon availability of the dyes. Embossed initials, Conchos and sterling accents may be added as well – if you have a design in mind bring it to us and we will find a way to create your very own personalized, custom hand tooled belt. Our custom hand tooled leather belts can also be customized by size – in between standard sizes, no problem we can build a belt in odd size configurations or even ½ sizes. The options are virtually endless…
