Leather Belt - Fleur De Lis - Cafe
The belt emboss pattern was inspired by the 13th-17th French Renaissance architecture with rolling patterns of fleurs heavily embossed on the leather. The back of the belt is branded with the Seraph logo, material quality details, size then branded with, "Designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, California USA".
Fleur means lily or flower and has been a symbol of royalty in France and other countries. This is our creative rendition of it. The American made solid bronze buckle sits tilted at a 45° angle to be unique and comfortable to wear.
The back of the buckle has our dash-dot-diamond pattern and we always tie in a Bible verse that compliments the style of the belt. The verse for this belt reads, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" Joshua 1:9
Belt Strap Construction
The belt is constructed of hand picked Italian top grain leather and Italian calf suede. The leathers are hand cut, sewn and finished in Los Angeles.
We use a bold thick thread for edge stitching. The edges are painted with 6-10 coats of Italian durable edge paint. The tip of each belt is custom designed to compliment the overall belt theme.
Each buckle was originally made from a wax carving with high details. The hand carving creative process usually takes 3-4 weeks before it is then cast into the master. The master is then polished finished and a mold is made that will be used for producing the production waxes that are then cast in Los Angeles from American Bronze or American White Bronze. We use patinas and different finishing processes depending on the buckle.
