Western Tooled Leather Belt - Cognac

Sale price$198.00

Western Tooled Leather Belt - Cognac

Made in the same small atelier in Mexico as the Tooled Leather Tote. Strips of natural tanned leather are carved and stamped by hand, then given a light coating of oil to help to soften and protect the leather. Each belt is unique due to the handmade nature and will develop a beautiful and rich patina with use over the years. A natural brass buckle is included, but it easily snaps off so that you can replace it with your own favorite buckle.

  • Order one size larger than your waist size (ex: if your pants are a 34, buy a 36 belt)
  • 3/4" wide at end (use this dimension for buckles)
  • Made in Mexico

From the creator:

This season we pulled a lot of inspiration from Georgia O’Keeffe and the trips she took during the 20s and 30s to find inspiration in the mountains, specifically to New Mexico, and eventually her life in Abiquiu. 

“I saw a lot of parallels between that and my life. Living in and loving New York City, but yearning for the mountains. Yearning for the sand, dirt, snow, cacti, and desert air,” says Peter, our founder and designer. 

The colors for this season come from our love of Diné weavings and a lot of O’Keeffe’s paintings that came from her time in New Mexico; the canyons and cliffsides. We feature the “Churro Brown” color which comes from the brown color of the Churro Diné sheep, which is used in a lot of the weavings from the late 20s and 30s, and those found at the Two Grey Hills Trading Post. That specific brown they used is the natural color of the yarn, and its red tint plays so well with the Sandstone found in New Mexico, and its natural reddish/pinkish colors. 

Those colors are easily accompanied by our Sunshine Yellow, which is always present with and warming up the landscapes and natural colors.
Indigo played a big part of our collection as usual. We love indigo and how it ages and wears; we always appreciate and strive to make garments that look better the more they’re worn. We worked with our partnering mill to develop an unbleached linen/cotton canvas. It features a special twist in yarns which allows the canvas to have structure but also be open and airy. We offer that in an indigo-dyed yarn as well. We’re super excited to offer those in our signature hunting jacket with our custom corozo concha buttons. Also using that fabric on chinos and shorts. 

The madras is a beautiful, historic, and characteristic summer fabric. Usually you’d see that in bright, poppy colors and, while beautiful, we usually like to tone that down and give note to more faded and worn tones. OUR madras uses a lot of the colors from the surroundings in New Mexico. We used unbleached and undyed yarns where we could, and tried to use minimally processed dyes for the browns and tan colors in there as well. We have the stripe and the plaid, both in really rich but faded earthones. They sit very well with the other colors of the collection - and why shouldn’t they? Everything is pulled from the beauty naturally found out there. 

Striped tees were inspired a lot by time in Sante Fe and Dine´ Weavings. You can see the sage green and khaki colors from the second film image of some old architecture in Sante Fe. The Cochinel and Indigo colors were based on transitional weavings that I had and color referenced against some Pantone color books. The Blue stripes were based on early american farmhouse pottery glazes.

The striped tees use the same fine and slubby organic cotton of our tubular tees and are made in Portugal
