Kreis Three Layer Calfskin Belt
Kreis fashions the upper leather for this three layer belt with calfskin from an Upper Palatinate tanner. The lining and inside leather is made of pit tanned cow’s leather from Kobel in Kellinghusen. A foundry in Westphalia casts the hand polished silver plated brass buckle. The 999 plated silver is approximately ten times thicker than on a conventional buckle. With the edge dye, the sewing thread and the leather polish coming from Germany this is a belt which is truly 100% "made in Germany".
Belts Made by Kreis Leather Manufacturers.
Founded in 1963 in Offenbach by Erich Kreis, the Hessian leather manufacturer Kreis became specialised in belts early on. The firm is run today by Bernd Kreis, the son of the founder. He uses only full-grained leather: classic box calf and traditionally pit-tanned cow leather from Germany, saddle leather from England and the legendary Shell Cordovan horse leather from the Horween® tannery in Chicago. Kreis is one of the very few manufacturers of hand-made leather belts which still cultivates the time-consuming art of triple layer belt construction.
