Honourable Artillery Company
The Honourable Artillery Company was established by Royal Charter in 1537.
Since the 17th century, the Company has also been described as a regiment and since 1964 has been registered as a charity.
Its charitable purpose, in line with its original charter, is 'for military exercise and for the better defence of the realm'.
The HAC has occupied Artillery Garden since 1641 and Armoury House, its headquarters and Mess, since 1734.
The belt has been designed to mirror the regimental motif of the Company.
All of our belts are hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads.
We use the highest quality leather to ensure our belts are extremely long lasting and durable.
This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The old Honourable Artillery Company tie is not a tie at all. It’s a Manyatta belt.
IMPORTANT - HOW TO MEASURE A BELT:
We believe in being totally honest with our customers. Like a bespoke suit or pair of shoes, outstanding craftsmanship takes time. When the order is placed, the mamas in Kenya start beading your belt, utilising their cultural and ancestral skills. Once this is complete, the belt is sent to us in the UK. For this reason, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
