Medieval belts and their role

In the Middle Ages, belts were an inherent part of human’s outfits. Often richly decorated, they were used to tie around the waist and also to attach various items like pouches or weapons. Both men and women wore leather belts of various width and color, often with metal elements or embossed patterns. Fabric belts were less popular.

Like all former clothing, medieval belts had a symbolic role. Wealthiness and marital status - especially in the case of women - were displayed in the costliness of dress and accompanying accessories.

All of our belts are based on archaeological findings and iconographic representations. Also, they are manufactured by high level craftsmen. The leather used in the process of manufacturing belts is dyed with natural pigments and it is 3-4 mm thick.
