How do I measure the belt?

Tips for measuring: The circumference measured at the height of the belt loop plus an additional 13 cm gives the correct belt length. Example: Circumference 91 cm plus 13 cm gives 104 cm. The optimal belt length in this case is 105 cm.

Belt as a gift: It is also possible to measure an existing belt: The length from the buckle to the most used belt hole is equal to Hip circumference, i.e. take this length and add 13cm, which gives the belt length.

 

Attention: Never measure the whole belt, because belts have different length belt ends.

Leather with a promising future

We use 100 per cent sustainable cowhide, which we source from "Traceable Leather source. The hides are sourced from Fairfleisch , a company that only slaughters animals from certified organic farms and ensures the best possible conditions and short transport distances (no more than 30km).

The tanning is chrome-free and vegetable-based, carried out by a traditional company in southern Germany, so we can trace where and how the cow lived and how the tanning took place.

Handicraft from Appenzellerland

The Appenzell belt is a piece of old Swiss tradition. The belts used to be made of handmade metal fittings showing Alpine motifs such as alpine dairymen, suns, ornaments and cows. The more ornaments there were on the belt, the richer the wearer was.

Today there are only a handful of producers left in Appenzell. Daniel Fuchs is one of the few and a third-generation saddler. Much has remained the same: The cutting of the leather, the arrangement of the elements, the ornaments are, however, only made by hand in individual cases. The brass and nickel silver ornaments are stamped, but always according to the respective pattern of the Sennensattler. They are thus the signature of the maker and the eye of the connoisseur recognises a Fuchs, Fässler or Bachmann.
