Old Ludgrovian (Ludgrove School)
Ludgrove is a boys-only, independent preparatory school in Berkshire, UK. It was founded by the international footballer Arthur Dunn in 1892 and the original site was in North London.
Although academically ambitious (to this day 70% of its boys go to Eton, Harrow and Radley), it is possibly better known for its sport and cricket in particular – still an obsession with many pupils and staff!
Famous old boys include Princes William and Harry, the Prime Minister Alec Douglas-Home, Bear Grylls and Alexander Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath.
The belt has been designed by an Old Ludgrovian and represents not only the school colours but also Ludgrove’s connection with cricket – the 3 white stripes are cricket stumps!
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 Ludgrove School 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 up to 6 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
