Belts such as those found today were not always part of the clothes. Soaked birch bark was used as one of the first fastenings for clothing. In the Bronze Age, people who could afford it had chain links made of metal links held together with a hook. The Romans invented the belt buckle and thus the belt that we know today. In the 12th century it became fashionable to wear the belt long and twice wrapped around the body. In the Middle Ages the belt symbolized strength, rule and marital fidelity, and was used by both men and women. During this time the strap end was often knotted behind the buckle and worn as a long belt. Many everyday items were attached to the belt, e.g. Belt bags, spoons, combs, bags and much more. As an expression of wealth and social status, the belts of the nobles were adorned with treasures, e.g. Fittings made of gold and silver, precious stones, glass beads and embroidery, and also served as a sword holder for the lords of the nobility.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, the leather belt lost its importance because it was no longer necessary to hold the clothes together. Other accessories such as sashes were worn instead. Eventually, the belt completely disappeared from women's fashion in 1835. Only in the military did the leather belt remain an important part of clothing, especially in Eastern Europe and Russia. These were often very wide and were worn tightly to emphasize the upper body and the shoulder and to give the impression of strength, masculinity and authority. The belt was so important even in some armies that e.g. the Mongols formed alliances by trading belts with the Allies. The Frankish rulers believed that they only took power when they had the belts of their enemies. It wasn't until 1890 that the leather belt became popular again as a replacement for braces in America. Since then, the belt has become an integral part of fashion and clothing.

Handcrafted leather belts look back on a long tradition. However, the saddler was not the original master of manufacture. In the Middle Ages, craftsmen were organized in strictly divided guilds, whereby the guild's work was determined. The tanner was responsible for the leather production, the belt cutter for the completion of the straps. Buckles, fittings and decorative rivets were made by buckle makers or goldsmiths, depending on the materials used, whether brass, tin, gold, silver and jewels to decorate.
