Shopping on the Brian Kelleghan website, designer & manufacturer, is a study in choice. He brought pictorial weaving to belts and climbing gear 29 years ago . . . and has not stopped designing, manufacturing, & updating.
Denied a new belt most of my childhood (except across my buttocks), I now own far more than a basketball team needs. Yes, belts (and shoes) are my wardrobe vices. When a shopping opportunity arose, I went right to BisonBelts and selected a belt for each of my three nieces. With dozens of designs, I was able to find a belt to match the personality and likes of each individual girl.
My decision? 25mm wide for kids (and women) with an elliptical airport-friendly tri-glide buckle of Dupont Delrin. And the materials? Jacquard looms in Central Falls, Rhode Island weave nylon into his patterned webbing. BisonDesign labels are stitched in Chicago. The thread, naturally, comes from Mt Holly, North Carolina. And the cutting, manicuring, sewing, labeling, trimming, and QC before packaging takes place back home in Longmont Colorado.
Great design, excellent materials, perfect manufacturing!
