Belts - Atelier LaDurance vs. Iron Heart

Here are two of my favorite belts: a 4,5 year old Atelier LaDurance and an Iron Heart belt, worn for a little over a month. The ALD is hand made in France from saddle leather. I think the patina it has developed over the years is just stunning. It started out vegetable tanned, while the Iron Heart wasn't tanned at all. Of course the Iron Heart is made in Japan, from thick cowhide leather. Check out more pics after the break.

The Iron Heart belt (model no. IHB-02-tan) is available in our online shop.
