Pre-Order Available for Spring 2011 Delivery - Kicking Mule Workshop Hand Crafted Leather Belts


In spring of 2009, Kicking Mule Workshop released a limited edition run of the most amazing tanned leather belts which sold out as fast they arrived. Ever since, we have received numerous requests as to when they will be available again. Well, they are coming back! Another limited production run will be made as part of the Kicking Mule Workshop Spring Summer 2011 collection.

KMW leather belts are 100% hand crafted in Japan. The buckle is hand-forged brass. The leather is English Saddle leather which is originally hand selected in the USA as cowhide and is shipped to Japan where Japanese artisans use ancient methods of hand dipping, sun drying and vegetable tanning to finish the leather. During the tanning process fish oil is added, a very old Japanese technique for finishing leather. The result is a heavy duty, thick, beautifully hand-crafted leather belt. With wear, the leather and the buckle will continue to patina and will become far more beautiful than any dyed leather.

Due to the number of requests we have received for these belts, we will start accepting pre-orders now. Blue Owl will have limited stock in the natural color (shown above) of this belt, but if you want to secure your order for natural or the other available colors, please send us an e-mail. Natural.
