The OAK CREEK 1.5 Leather Belt

DESCRIPTION

Our signature belt, the 1.5" Oak Creek is cut from harness leather tanned at Hermann Oak Tannery in St. Louis, Missouri. This is a 4th Generation Tannery that uses tree bark and other tannin’s to cure their natural leather. Due to no dyes being used as colorant additives in this leather, the oils, tallow’s and waxes cause color shifting. The wax and tallow compound that makes this leather so durable and water repellent gives it a unique color, but understand, it is not consistently even.

The primary use of this leather is for saddlery. Dirt, sweat, salt, and horse drool were hard on ordinary leather so a strong, weather resistant, vegetable tanned leather was invented for the horseman’s reins. This process has changed little in 140 years. Each hide still needs to be steeped for over a month in giant pools of bark and root extracts. Then, the hides are added to giant wooden drums loaded with beef tallow, waxes, and shin bone oils. With heat and centrifugal force, “hot stuffed” harness leather was born when the rotating drums finished the job. That was over a hundred years ago and not very much has changed in the process.

The undyed leather has color variations that make it a natural American beauty that is often copied, but never duplicated. We want our customers to understand that it can be returned if it does not meet your satisfaction. That is how Shep Hermann runs his tannery and that is how sure we are about this leather.

We had this leather made in chocolate. It has all the waxes and oils and is a true classic chocolate. If you’d prefer this version, please request in the notes section of your order. The chocolate version looks best with 2 rows of chocolate thread.

HISTORY

Wearing natural leather can have the ability of connecting us to our environment in ways we may not understand. For man, the process of tanning leather with roots and bark from trees goes back to the cave. Thousands of years of evolution physically join man and leather to nature and survival.

CARE

Owning a naturally tanned leather belt is both a privilege and a luxury. After 2 years, condition your leather belt with 2 light coats of 100% pure lanolin, Neatsfoot oil or any other fossil fuel free, high quality conditioner. If ever dirty, clean only with saddle soap. Remember, when it's dry reapply.

    Excellent Quality Belt and Customer Service!

    I needed a quality belt to wear, in general, as well as horseback riding that would be sturdy enough to support the belt pouch that holds my Swiss Army multiple function equestrian tool. This belt is perfect! Manny answered all of my questions and helped me to get the proper belt for my needs. The leather is old-world beautiful and the perfect thickness. Manny and Brenda went the extra mile to provide amazing customer service and a fabulous, quality belt that I love.

    The Hermann Oak leather is beautiful.

    I did a lot of searching for this belt because I expect to wear it for the rest of my life. Manny could not have been more helpful and responsive to my particular desires. He was quick to make and send a great belt at a very reasonable price. I am very happy with the purchase and pleased to support this quality company. Norris
