The world of belts, buckles and leather is a diverse, fascinating and at times complex one. We hope that the information in the pages below will provide you with answers to the majority of the questions that you may have. You may find that we have gone a little over the top with the detail but we would prefer to let you choose how much or how little you wish to dig into it. If there is anything else you would like to know please do not hesitate to ask and we will do our best to get back to you or add further information onto this page to help others in the future.

The subject of leather is broad and incredibly wide ranging, especially when you consider that here at Elliot Rhodes we use over 250 different types of leather in our collection – that’s just types of leather NOT colours!

But we’ll try and give you a potted guide to what we feel are the most important aspects of the leather that is used to make your belt.
