Bologna Belt


Our new Natural Tan leather is tanned in Florence Italy and takes its colour from Chestnut and Mimosa barks combined with oils and waxes used in the dressing of the hide. No dyes are used in the making process. The colour will deepen with time to a rich honey colour caused by the reaction of UV light on the wood tannins.

  • Naturally tanned Italian leather
  • Cut from the hide in one piece 3.5mm thick
  • Solid Brass or Nickel Plated Buckle
  • Free personalisation, choice of lettering styles and sizes
  • Belt width 35mm

The Bologna belt measures 35mm wide, a tad narrower than our usual 38mm. With the elegant lighter weight buckle this belt works really well for both smart and casual.

The buckles are cast in solid brass at a foundry in Lombardy.


As with all of Tanner Bates buckles the Bologna buckle carries a lifetime warranty.

We are delighted to offer our new personalisation options. Tanner Bates is incorporating modern tech alongside our traditional skills and materials enhancing the bespoke nature of our products. For the first time you can choose from a range of font sizes and styles.
