Handcrafted Leather Belt in Black or Mahogany
~ Made in Canada, Made to Last ~
Each belt is handmade in Toronto, Canada ~ hand cut from top grain, vegetable tanned cowhide, multiple stained with a water-based dye, hand oiled and waxed and then finished with a solid brass buckle.
The natural character and raw imperfections of the veg tan leather hides we work with means that no two belts are exactly the same. The hand-dying process highlights the unique grain of each piece, ensuring a one-of-a-kind belt that improves with age and becomes more supple over time.
100% of all profits go towards PACT, supporting free empowerment programs and higher learning opportunities for youth.

Handcrafted, Hand-dyed & Local Made
How to choose a size:
- Measure your current belt from edge of buckle (where leather wraps around) to the hole you use most. If it’s 36″, buy a belt that is closest in length.
- Most people wear their pants around their hips, so choose a belt that is at least 2″ longer than your pant hip size. For instance, if your pants are 34″, choose a 36″ belt or longer (if you wear your belt around your waist, choose a belt at least 2″ wider than your waist).
We measure our belts from the middle hole to the edge of the buckle, where the leather wraps. There are holes 2″ on either side of the middle hole, so even if you don’t pick the most perfect size, the belt is likely to fit well.
S 31″ | M 33/34″ | L 35/36″ | XL 37/38″

Each PACT Leather Goods handcrafted belt is a true labour of love, going through several steps and many days to complete.
The process starts with top grain, vegetable tanned cowhide that is transformed though many stages to become a well crafted, durable accessory that will last. Every step is done by hand, from cutting and beveling to oiling and tanning to adding hardware and rivets. The final product is sealed with a beeswax product to enhance its lustre and add malleability.
The leather we use for each belt has its own unique characteristics and occasionally maintain natural branding marks and accept dye differently. Our handcrafted leather belts get better with age, becoming softer and developing their own natural character.
Social Good, For-Purpose Youth Initiative

Although each belt is sealed with a beeswax product, we recommend avoiding getting it wet or immersing in water as the color can run.
These handcrafted belts age nicely, taking on a worn-in look and require very little care. If you want to jump start its softness or color, condition with leather oil and spot clean any dirt.
Do not store in plastic.
