Are ring belts period? From our research ring based buckles have (or had) a pin to secure the belt, just like a regular buckle. Ring belts became popular in the 1960s amongst medieval enthusiasts, possibly because of the difficulty of sourcing historically accurate buckles.
Today ring belts are still very popular in the SCA and LARP groups. Ring belts are relatively inexpensive and can fit a large variety of sizes without the need to punch more holes in them. This makes them popular. Hospitaller’s or Chatelain’s find these make a great goldkey item for lending new members
Made from 3.5mm thick quality dark brown crunch veg tan leather with a strap width of 40mm. Crunch leather is a full grain leather which shows more of the natural grain of the leather. The leather is tanned with two layers of natural transparent dyes. The transparent dyes protect the leather while also bringing out the natural characteristics of the leather. Vegetable tan leather has a higher durability, strength and better colour and tone than chrome tanned leather.
Make Your Own Medieval believes in sustainable environmental practices and we are actively moving away from chrome tanned leather to veg tan leather products which are less damaging to the environment.
The belt is made from 16.5cm long pieces of leather which have been riveted together with brass rivets. The ring is made from brass.
The belt has no pre-stamped holes as it is fastened by knotting around the ring.
Available in three sizes 130cm, 150cm and 170cm in length.
