Our water buffalo belt strips are cut from 8-9 oz veg-tan buffalo. We have made belts with this leather for over 10 years and love it because it does not seem to stretch like normal cowhide belts.
Also a great option for straps for purses, suspenders and the likes.
To make an extra heavy belt with these consider adding a 3-4 oz lining. You will be amazed at how much your customers LOVE these belts!
Does not tool like natural veg-tan leather but you can add your maker's mark to them.
