Our Process

Truly skilled artisans are hard to find. But you’ll find them at Maida’s Belts & Buckles where devotion and artistry is infused into every belt and buckle they make.

Handcrafted Leather Belts

Whether exotic skin or Italian calf, hand-carved or hitched horsehair, every Maida’s Belts & Buckles belt is crafted by hand with painstaking attention to detail by a skilled leather craftsman. Belts are measured and cut from fine tanned hides, carefully constructed, and masterfully finished. Embellishments such as conchos or intricately carved Filigree patterns can also be designed. Each belt is custom-fitted to individual specifications and features the Maida’s Belts & Buckles stamp signifying more than a century of hard-won craftsmanship. Conditioning is always complimentary, satisfaction always guaranteed.

In addition to a distinctive selection of finished buckles, customers can commission specially designed pieces featuring engraving such as initials, inscriptions, or logos, as well as decorative inlay from precious stones and ivories to shells and French medallic art. Whether it starts with a sketch or a photo, Maida’s Belts & Buckles will bring the customer’s unique vision to life.
