For almost 40 years, Andersons Belts have specialised in hand-making a range of meticulously-crafted men's belts at the Andersons Belts studios in Parma, northern Italy.
The woven belt is a speciality of the house at Andersons Belts. Each one is hand-braided using techniques perfected over the decades since founder Carlo Valenti decided to call his company Andersons Belts, because his favourite hats and suits came from English tailor Anderson and Sheppard.
Today, every belt that Andersons Belts release is proudly made by 50 employees drawn from the city's renowned Parma leather artisans.
