Learn More About Ostrich Leather Belts

Ostrich leather belts are belts made from the skin of an ostrich, a large flightless bird native to Africa. Ostrich leather is known for its distinctive texture, which is characterized by raised bumps or quills that give it a rough, wavy appearance.

Ostrich leather belts are generally more expensive than belts made from other types of leather due to the relative rarity of ostriches and the unique characteristics of ostrich leather. They are prized for their durability, softness, and resistance to stains and water, and are often considered a luxury item.

Ostrich leather belts are available in a range of colors and styles, including classic black and brown shades as well as more vibrant colors like red and purple. They can be worn as a statement piece or as a classic accessory to add a touch of sophistication to any outfit.

Ostrich leather belts are considered a sustainable material because they are a byproduct of the food industry and do not require the animal to be killed specifically for its skin. However, it is important to consider the environmental impacts of the production of ostrich leather, including water pollution and the use of chemicals in the tanning process, when purchasing an ostrich leather belt or any other product made from ostrich leather.

Our Ostrich Leather Belts are individually handmade in South Africa from exotic ostrich leather using traditional methods. These stylish belts have a smooth calf leather lining and are available in an array of colours from classic browns to standout shades such as chartreuse and flame red. Suitable for both Gentleman and Ladies, an ostrich leather belt looks equally as good paired casually with a pair of chinos or denim, as it does more formally with a suit.

Ostrich Leather is famed for its distinctive markings and durability making these belts a fabulous gift and an investment piece that will last a lifetime. Our belts are measured in inches from the tip of the buckle to the middle hole and have a width of 1 ¼". Available in Black, Anthracite Grey, Tabac Brown, Cognac Brown, Tangerine, Flame Red and Clematis Blue.

Please note that we recommend you order two sizes up from your normal trouser waist size measurement.
