Based on the belts of the US Police and Highway Patrol.
The leather is a traditional, pure vegetable tanned saddle leather made by Herman Oaks Tannery of St. Louis, USA. The raw material is exclusively steer hides. Buckle is solid brass, made in England; the thread a so-called „Tiger Thread“, made in Germany.
Lukas makes “The Tellason Fuzz Belt“ completely by hand. He starts with shaving the leather substance from 7 to 4 mm with a vintage splitting machine. Then he punches the traditional „basket weave“ pattern with hammer and a special tool into the leather. Then the Tellason wording is cut in with a swivel knife. The natural colored leather is then dyed and oiled by hand with classic saddlery dyes. The edges are polished with beeswax. The material and special treatment offer a good potential to develop genuine patina.
