- Kangaroo leather has the strongest tensile strength for it's thickness of any leather and yet is remarkably soft and supple. The belts are hand-plaited from 17 hand-cut strands and take a minimum of 8 hours work just for the strap. This is a sensitive craft requiring mastery. Temperature and humidity affect the leather's behaviour and tensioning changes whilst working the leather, so oiling needs to be carefully managed across the plaiting process to keep the belt straight and even.
- Roo belt plaiting was a traditional Australian bushcraft yet to be fully revived. They offer a beautifully refined slice of our Australian bush heritage, often handed down through the family they are characterful and charmingly unique. As far as we know these are the only locally and traditionally hand cut and plaited belts available.
