QUALITY AND CARE
The quality of Wood Belt belts is guaranteed through the cooperation of several master craftspeople, and 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. Wood Belt belts have to be worn with care and with the understanding that wood is a natural and breakable material. The wooden part of the belt (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. After drying, the belt can be treated with a leather conditioner, which will keep the leather soft and reduce cracking.
The manufacture of products, including belts, affects the environment and the stocks of natural resources and raw materials, and generates waste. Since the resources are limited, they have to be managed with care.
The guiding principle of a circular economy is a positive materials loop, which is oriented towards the re-use, repair and recycling of existing materials and products.
Opportunities for the application of circular economy principles have to be sought starting from 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.
