HANDCRAFTED LEATHER GOODS MADE IN ENGLAND
Voss Belts are individually hand crafted by Pete Voss himself. Made from the finest Italian and Belgian leather, each hide is painstakingly hand selected. Solid brass or chrome plated cast buckles are polished to perfection in the workshop. The result is quality, endurance and style.
During the 90’s Pete Voss was frontman of cult band Campag Velocet and fashion stylist for ID magazine. His involvement in the worlds of fashion & music led to Voss Belts receiving private commissions from high profile clients as well as substantial orders from Duffer Of St George and Urban Outfitters.
In 2011 Voss Belts was re-launched, primarily as a bespoke service. Such was demand Pete Voss created a small collection which was immediately snapped up by hip menswear brand YMC for their flagship London outlets. Before long Voss Belts was stocked by several of the UK’s premium menswear boutiques, as well as outlets in Germany, France and Singapore.
“I am proud to be part of the movement towards traditional craftsmanship and the care put into making hand made goods. At one time British Made goods were some of the best in the world, until mass production took over. Now there is a renewed appreciation for individually crafted products and quality above quantity. This is of utmost importance to my work.”
Styles are worked around the basis of a jean belt, made unique with the addition of hand-riveting alongside contrasting leather thonging. There is a varied colour palette available including black, chocolate brown, burgundy and yellow, with a selection of chrome or brass buckles. Brightly coloured edge-dye is painstakingly applied to add vibrant contrast to the edges of belt straps. There is a range of slimmer width styles suitable for wearing with tailored trousers as well as jeans.
Self taught Voss is a perfectionist in his craft and each belt takes up to 3 hours to create in the workshop. “I see a Voss Belt as an investment instead of a throwaway piece of fashion. Voss Belts for Life!”
