For over a century, B.Belts' have been handmade in Germany preserving a long-running family heritage and tradition. The company was founded more than 100 years ago by Phillip Bazlan, beginning as a saddlery and later expanding into leather goods when Bazlen’s son, Max, took over in the twentieth century. In the ’70s, Bazlen’s grandsons introduced the brand’s now signature, artisan-made studded belts. B.Belt's first-class, quality leathers are sourced from Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, and Germany to create each belt. Every belt from passes through the hands of approximately 25 skilled workers. Glove makers, saddlers, and fine bag makers all work to create each belt. Their craftsmanship is revealed in the saddler’s elements; seams are hand sewn to secure the clasps.
