A belt leather must be rigid and not quite fluid, not lengthened, of substantial length and thickness. Vegetable tanned leather is the most acceptable leather for meeting these specific specifications. Any parts of an adult cattle (or bull) are best suited to all specifications, which is why these large hides are broken into more homogeneous parts.
In order to ensure a longer preservation, yet not yet tanned, the cut of the hides is mainly done on raw hides only subjected to salting. Since they are more closely crossed, an adult bovine leather has very compact fibers; however, there is varying compactness and hence resistance between the three fundamental parts of a leather: this is why each leather belt is cut into two bellies (the side parts), the shoulder (the front part) and the butt (the back part).
The double butt (or bend) is the most desirable section of the belt, both because it is the main part of the skin and because it has a very uniform and square form, a higher thickness and a more resistant fabric.
Even the shoulder is commonly used for producing belts, whether it comes from heavy animals and with particular specifications such as square form, ample length and thickness. Eventually, owing to its more uneven form and more elastic fiber, the belly is not recommended for belts
A genuine leather belt would never be a loss, particularly if it is vegetable tanned: all leather and vegetable tanning materials (extracts of the peel of certain tannin-rich trees) are entirely natural. Faux leather is mistakenly referred to as ecological, but is derived from oil and has many components that make recycling impossible. The longevity of real leather belts is very long and over time they also get more elegant and, on the contrary, with the use, the ecological leather belts deteriorate even faster.
Belts may also consist only of a leather strip plus a buckle of brass. Vegetable tanning is the most appropriate material for making a basic belt without padding and without gluing or stitching states, which will eventually restrict its strength and length. In reality, vegetable tanning have the property of filling dermal fibers and giving full thickness to the substance. As we have shown, the time and expense of making a belt can be very small, and it is the cost of the leather that has a decisive effect on the final price of the belt product. The leather must also be of high quality and come from the coat of the animal's heaviest and heaviest pieces. The production of leather is very long and difficult to standardize, particularly in the case of vegetable tanning: tanning is often an artisanal process that needs continuous attention as well as the realization of the finished product.
