Medieval garters made from natural leather with embossed decoration. Buckles are connected with buckle plates.
Medieval garters were an accessory worn in the Middle Ages by both men and women. The garter was a type of band made of various materials worn around a leg to hold up stockings or socks. Just like most articles of clothing, medieval garters joined both functionality and fashionability - the leather surface often was enriched with embossments, and garters could be finished with decorative buckles.
Leather color: natural, black or brown (please write in additional information box). Photos that present parts of belts are for presenting the available colors of leather for garters.

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.
