Trouser clip cowhide
In the collaboration with our manufacturers often also ideas for new products arise, which we then jointly put into practice. With Greenbelts® we have developed a series of bicycle bags and accessories, for the design of which we have been inspired by the old Swiss army bags. As a material, of course, only the wonderful cowhide leather, as it is also used for the Greenbelts® bags, came into question.
Rugged and weatherproof.
The classic trouser clip comes here in the form of a leather strap with ball button closure. So it not only keeps fluttering pant legs away from the bike chain, but also fits the bike bags that we have developed together with Greenbelts®. The same non-slip, vegetable-tanned and barrel-dyed cowhide is used. With 3 mm thickness, it is robust, durable and long-lasting. Thanks to the rustproof ball buttons, the trouser clip can not be harmed by wind and weather.
Greenbelts.® All-Natural Leather Products.
The Greenbelts® label manufactures all-natural leather products, produces them in a fair way and follows the idea of sustainability. The idea of founder Rolf Ihmels, who is behind the brand based in the Osnabrück region, is that this approach helps to ensure that owners may enjoy the leather products for a long time. Ihmels has been in the industry for decades and has his current profession in his genes, so to speak: His parents’ company made belts, although they operated conventionally. In 2005, Ihmels went into business with his own brand. Based on his commitment to sustainability, he chose no new building for the company’s location but one that had previously housed a carpenter’s workshop. Next to the offices, he has vegetable-tanned full-grain cowhide processed into belts and bags. Ihmels works exclusively with European tanneries that guarantee all relevant environmental standards and provide solid, honest leathers that need neither lining nor padding. You can feel, see and smell the leather’s quality in the finished product. Plus, such leathers can merge into the natural material cycle at the end of the product’s life. Ihmels feels every piece of leather he processes was once the skin of a living being and should be respected and honoured accordingly. For this reason, he does everything in his power to process the leather in a way that preserves its value over a long time.
