Our sandcast buckle belt seeks to pay homage to the rich Southwestern sandcasting tradition and stylistic expression, that has deep roots in Native American culture and artistry.
The buckle is crafted from a substantial 160 grams of solid brass, plated with 99.9% pure silver. This combination provides both weight and durability, ensuring longevity, while the pure silver delivers the authentic finish that defines this buckle style.
The sandcasting process used for this buckle is renowned for creating pieces with a rugged, textured appearance that captures the natural qualities of the sandstone mold. As a result, no two pieces are ever quite the same.
The belt strap is meticulously crafted from Italian leather, and done in accordance to traditional Native American belt straps, where no studs or metal fasteners were used to secure the belt to the buckle. Instead, we used a leather string, which is laced through small holes in the belt strap. This method allows for adjustability and a secure fit while maintaining the traditional and handmade aesthetic of Native American belts.
