The black Roo skins these belts were cut from were very thick, making a chunky durable belt. Personally selected from the tannery by the legend Richard Taubmen (master whipmaker). I believe the combination of Richards hand picked skins and the legendary R.M.Williams Trophy Buckles, create possibly the best traditional Stockmans belt ever.

This one one of 3 custom order belts I made, with these classic solid brass roller buckles that my wife brought back from London recently. The buckles were made in Italy so it’s a great coincidence that these belts are going to Italy. I guess you could say they are going home. On a Kangaroo’s back!

Just finished this custom order belt that I was truly honoured to make, as it was for a fellow plaiter in the USA. I’m blown away by the quality of the work Jackie does, so was stoked to do something special for her. Check out Jackie’s shop The Krazy Kangaroo for some incredible knot work and plaiting.

The R.M.Williams Double Edge Plait Range are all in the Etsy shop (with more photos), ready to be snapped up for Christmas.

Cheers,
Charlie.

Brass buckles are a timeless classic and work beautifully with the plaited kangaroo hide.

Get in early and snap one up for fathers day!

New Belts hot off the press!

I’ve just created a brand new design for a Ladies belt. It’s more of the fashion style, that my wife tells me, ALL the women are wearing!

Ladies Fashion Adjustable Leather Two Tone Patterned Belt with Solid Brass Horseshoe Buckle.

Yep that right ladies, this belt can change from as small as a 84cm to as large as a 100cm size. Great to wear on the waist or the hips, and being plaited it will stretch and soften too. Bound to be the most comfy belt in the wardrobe! IMG_6991

Ladies Fashion Adjustable Leather Plaited Belt with Solid Brass Horseshoe Buckle.

This one would vary in size from around 89cm to about 107cm in size. Both belts come with a matching plaited belt keeper. This means you can tuck the end of the belt through the loop, keeping it nice and tidy.

So I may have been quiet here on the blog but I’m still plaiting!

More belts are being added to my Etsy Shop all the time, feel free to check them out if you’d like!

Cheers.
