Australian Artisan Challenging Mass Produced Leather Belts


Full Grain Handmade Leather Belts Made in Australia


It's hard to find high quality belts these days. With low quality "genuine leather" belts with fabric reinforcements are known to easily tear over time.

My solution is to provide high quality belts for our customers. After many trials and testing of a variety of leathers I've put together one of Australia's best selection of handmade leather belts made in Adelaide, South Australia.

Using exclusive leather from two renowned English tanneries J & FJ Baker & Thomas Ware & Sons. This collection has been closely formulated to provide something special for our customers.

I am are so confident in my products I am offering this deal:

- Use code 10% off for the first purchase
- Get 15% off next purchase when a product review is completed (emailed two weeks after belt is mailed)
- FREE Australian made premium leather conditioner with EVERY purchase
- FREE shipping over $100 in Australia

What is Going on?

Many manufactures use two deceptive terms to describe their leather belts today. The terms are "Geninue Leather" or "Bonded Leather"

While it is true "Genuine Leather" does refer to authentic leather it is however a much lower quality leather. The leather is split and the lower quality and weaker section is used.

"Bonded Leather" can be carried under names such as LeatherSoft, Faux Leather, Vinyl, Reconstituted Leather or Composite. "Bonded Leather" is a mixture of genuine leather mixed with a polyurethane binder. Most bonded leather has only 10-20% genuine leather.

Who am I

My name is Joseph Medcalf and I am the founder and leather craftsman at Joseph M. Leather. I've personally had a belt that was made of bonded leather that torn over time. Also with retail stores selling low quality belts with high prices I can understand how hard it is to find a high quality belt for a reasonable price. Our leather belts are some of the highest quality English bridle and full grain English harness leather made by one craftsman specifically for you. Our Belt Sizing Guide allows for accurate sizing and with a short turn around we are able to get your made to order premium leather belt to you. if you have any requests for custom sizes and/or number of holes on your leather belt/s please contact us.

"Joseph's meticulous attention to detail, not only in terms of his superb craftsmanship, but also, in his knowledge of sourcing of the best materials available is truly impressive. We have full confidence in Joe's excellent value for money, leatherware products. Highly recommended!" - Mary M

Belts of this quality are a needle in a haystack in a mass produced world. From visiting retail stores I am surprised at the high prices for such low quality belts. Using some of the best leather and solid hardware I believe that once you try out our belts you won't look back.
