Old Cranleighan (Cranleigh School)
Cranleigh School is an independent boarding school near Guildford in Surrey. It was founded in 1865 as a community school for the sons of local farmers. Girls began to join in the sixth form in 1971 and Cranleigh became fully co-educational in 1999.
The School is particularly known for its artistic and sporting qualities. Notable alumni include EW Swanton, Eric Felner, Sarah Ioannides, Alan Rusbridger, Frank Dove, Dr Eva Namusoke and Ollie Pope.
The belt has been modelled on the old school tie of predominantly navy blue with orange and white stripes and we created it in a vertical style.
All of our belts are hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads.
This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The Old Cranleighan 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!
