Old Oundelian (Oundle School)
Oundle School is an independent co-educational boarding and day school in the market town of Oundle in Northamptonshire.
The school has been governed by the Worshipful Company of Grocers in the City of London since its foundation by Sir William Laxton in 1556.
Oundle was a boys-only school until 1990 when it admitted girls for the first time. Presently it has just over 1000 pupils and is the 3rd largest independent school in England.
The various school buildings are scattered around the market town, with the Cloisters acting as the nucleus of the school community.
The belt is in a vertical design and replicates exactly the old school tie in the correct proportions of red, navy blue and silver.
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 Oundelian 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!
