A narrow civil belt with rhombus/lily embossing. It is decorated with 12 round mounts (0.9 cm diameter). This model is inspired by historical findings from Poland and England.

The buckle is based on English findings. The mount which is at the end of the belt is based on excavations in Gdańsk. The round mounts are based on findings in Elbląg.

Ladies will surely appreciate a narrow belt of this type, but men can wear it as well. Elegant embossment and mounts will work as a decoration for classy casual outfits and court outfits: cottehardie, Burgundian or outer dress.

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.
