Our minimalist belt is made of two pieces: a leather strap & a stainless steel buckle. With the strap, we focused on high quality, English bridle leather, durable and elegant. The buckle pays homage to the classic conway style buckle, in a modern way. It has a unique form, different than any buckle we’d seen. Because of the unique shape and structure, we had to explore many routes to find the best way to build it. Metal machining was way too expensive, because all the metal inside the form would have been wasted. 3D printing was possible (and really cool), but also way too expensive. The best option was investment casting, but this is a very involved process that would require partnering with a factory.
