Ferrum & Hide

Mr Tallett working on design

Our story

In 2013 Ferrum & Hide Director David Tallett, former engineer and master engraver to the luxury British gun trade for 30 years needed a new belt, disappointed with the quality and generic appearance of the buckles he looked at, he decided he would use his decades of experience to make one for himself.

He designed, manually machined, filed, polished, engraved and finished a belt buckle inspired by the fine quality guns he works on, with pleasing results.
After wearing this belt for a while a number of people commented on the buckles beautiful and unique appearance. Encouraged by these comments
in late 2014, he set about refining the buckles design and finishes, then finding the skilled engineers, craftsmen, leather workers and the best 
materials to make a fine quality belt made entirely in England.
