QUALITY AND CARE

The cooperation of several master craftspeople results in the quality of our belts. We have invested all of our know-how and care into their production. Therefore we offer a lifetime warranty on the wooden parts of Wood Belt belts.

It’s a good idea to take care of your belt even while you are wearing it. Wear Wood Belt with the understanding that wood is a natural and breakable material. The buckle is oiled, and therefore should occasionally be wiped with a dry cloth. Clean the leather part with a damp cloth, adding a bit of mild antibacterial soap if you like, and dry gently with a dry cloth. Treat the belt with a leather conditioner, which will keep the leather soft and reduce cracking.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

The manufacture of products, including belts, affects the environment and the stocks of natural resources and raw materials and generates waste. We need to manage resources with care.

The guiding principle of a circular economy is a positive materials loop. We need to re-use, repair and recycle existing materials and products.
We integrate circular economy principles into the development, planning and design of the product, the selection of the materials and the selection of the production processes right through to the waste management process.

TOGETHER FOREVER REPAIR

We do not like a waste. However, we also think sometimes we don’t need new things if there is a way to bring new life to existing ones.

Wood Belt Together forever repair is dedicated to keeping your existing belt alive and ensuring new adventures for both of you. We can repair your belt or refurbish it with our wooden buckle or combine other used and new components.
