My earliest memories of leather belt making were around 1972. Dad was cutting leather belt straps from a full side of leather and Mom remarked that the hide had the "shape of America." It seemed to take up the whole living room. I remember one late night when his hands were wrapped in bloody gauze. It was the week before Christmas. He had quit his full time job to pursue a leather business. His evenings were spent making the leather belts that he would sell during the day.
Years later, I would sit behind Dad’s workbench and wonder if my hands would be strong enough to hole a belt with a leather punch. I would marvel at how straight and effortlessly he would punch seven holes and chop a perfectly even leather belt end in one swing of the hammer. Dad would say, “a good leather belt, made from one piece of full-grain harness leather, should last a lifetime.“ Here in Scottsdale, Arizona, some 40 years later, a new generation of Brulports are carrying on the pride and craftsmanship that our father started.
The 21 Step Process
This painstaking process has changed little over 40+ years.
Our 21 step process (from start to finish) offers no shortcuts, only the satisfaction in knowing that most companies are not willing to go through this laborious process.
We reject the belief in overseas mass production and leather belts made of urethane and suede pulp.
Our passion and concept is fueled by 4 guiding principals of design.
