made in Germany
Handmade in Germany! What would Philipp Bazlen have said after he founded his company more than a hundred years ago? Perhaps he would have said, “What else should I work with but with my hands? And where else should I work but in my home country?” What was taken for granted in the year 1899 is now uncommon in 2015. Leather goods handmade in Germany? Yes, it can be done. When we think of our grandfather, we are proud we have successfully managed to preserve his heritage. Our family is committed to carry on his tradition. As for the future, we’re confident we are moving in the right direction and will continue forward.
Are rivets really fashionable right now? Perhaps b.belt is responsible for some of the hype – who knows? But we are not particularly interested in that. Our goal is to create our own unique style with b.belt, and not to follow ‘trends’. With each new design, we try to go to the limits of the material. We strive to elicit something new from an ancient fabric. And what if rivets should go out of fashion? A handmade look, vintage leathers and a profusion of rivets will always be available at b.belt. Such is the heart of b.belt design.
A tour of our leather warehouse leaves most visitors in awe of the natural materials which are the life blood of our company. We are proud of the b.belt production team that embodies “Handmade in Germany”.
Our optimal use of materials and efficient production processes allow us to conserve and use resources as sparingly as possible. With the continuous development of product strategies and expansion of on-site renewable energies, we are continuously committed to our corporate responsibility.
All b.belt products and materials used in production are aligned with our ecological principles. We’ve manufactured at our original site in Metzingen since 1899. Our focus on efficient use of resources ensures the future of our family business and preserves employment. We have utilized our history and expertise to create a strong and sustainable business economy.
The environment is our greatest treasure. We actively assume our responsibility by conserving resources and avoiding emissions. Our environmental investments allow us to further strengthen the efficiency of our company site.
