The Royal Company of Merchants
The Royal Company of Merchants of the City of Edinburgh is a charitable organisation for business and professional people which is dedicated to supporting the young and the elderly.
It is Scotland's most pre-eminent livery company, tracing its history back to at least the year 1260.
The Company received its Royal Charter in 1681.
The belt has been designed in conjunction with the Royal Company and is in the vertical style of green, gold and blue.
It is sold on this website with the kind permission 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.
The standard belt is 1.5 inches wide. The thin belt is 1.25 inches wide.
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!
