Ethics & Sustainability
Our commitment to you.
The world around us is changing, as is the way we live and work. Our delicate climate and natural environments are at greater risk than ever before.
At Clinch Belts, we believe that there is a place for fashion to make a positive contribution towards creating a more sustainable way of living.
We’re not perfect, but we’re committed to continually improving both our belts and sustainable practices by creating quality products that impact our environment as minimally as possible. This is how we operate our business, our products, and the people who create them.
We’ve teamed up with skilled jewellers in Bali to produce buckles of the best possible quality while upholding high ethical production practices. To sustain this quality, our buckles are thoughtfully made without the use of any harsh chemicals.
We also strive to reuse metals as much as possible without affecting the luxurious quality of the finished piece. We’re proud to say that our silver buckles are made from 100% recycled sterling silver, while our brass buckles are made from more than 30% recycled brass metal.
A true testament to quality, our belt straps are ethically made in a small family owned factory in Italy. When sourcing our leathers, we do our best to work with small tanneries, and use vegetable dyed leathers when possible.
Our belts are heirloom pieces that you will treasure and be proud to pass on to future generations. We believe that investing in a beautifully made, high quality accessory can elevate your wardrobe as your outfits change from day to day, meaning less waste and lasting style.
It’s so important to us that our community knows that when they purchase our products, they're investing not only in a beautiful belt to treasure for years (and decades!) to come, but also in fashion that's created with preserving the beautiful world around us in mind.
This year, our goal is to become a B Corporation certified business as well as introduce a range of vegan leathers – to name but a few of our continued efforts to become a more sustainable business.
