Barnes and Moore X Clobbercalm Supply Co. Railroad Belt

We’ve got together with our friends at Clobbercalm Supply Co to create a somewhat substantial belt with a design inspired by vintage workwear belts from the mid 1800’s, when things were made to last, out of necessity rather than design.

This is a real heavyweight of a belt, with the 2’’ strap made from 12-13 oz finest organic natural vegetable tanned leather from Sweden’s reputed Tarnsjo tannery. This tannery has a rich heritage, dating back to 1873, and are the the only certified ‘organic’ tannery in the world. They are renowned for the high quality of their leather and ethical manufacturing process. The leather has a ‘creamy’ texture, slightly darker in shade than our English natural veg tan, and is also full grain. Each belt is unique, so it will show some shade texture and natural markings which add to the natural beauty of the leather.  Over time, with exposure to natural light it will age naturally, changing colour from its natural state to varying darker shades of tan, and develop a truly stunning patina.

The double prong buckle is cast by hand in solid brass by England’s last remaining sand cast foundry. They’ve been casting brass goods since 1837, so they’re pretty good at it, and as a testament hold the Royal Warrant and supply goods to Her Majesty the Queen of England!

Each belt comes with a Barnes & Moore gift box, made from recycled, sustainable materials and complimentary 5ml bottle of pure neatsfoot oil, used to condition the leather.

Each belt strip is hand cut to our standard width of 50mm (2’’), trimmed to size and the tips hand shaped. The edges are bevelled and hand ‘burnished’, which seals the fibres of the leather, not only for aesthetics, but to help prevent the edges absorbing moisture. The strap is then cut to receive the buckle, which is riveted by hand.

Established since 1873, Tarnsjo Garveri are amongst 5% of tanneries in the world using traditional vegetable tanning to produce their leather. The tannery is located in a forest on the banks of the Tärnsjön lake in Sweden and uses hides from local Swedish farms to produce superior quality leather.

Tarnsjo are committed to responsible, sustainable manufacture, and to minimising the environmental impact of the tanning process. Each hide can be traced back to the farm it was sourced from and each process it goes through is certified to be fully organic.

Hand made solid brass buckle, cast using traditional sand cast moulding. Finished and polished by hand.
