During 100 Days of Blue (May 29 - Sept 5) The Raven Works will contribute $25 to Blue Mind Life for the first 100 wave buckles sold
Each Wave buckle is individually cast in solid bronze at 2000 degrees and is designed to deliver a lifetime of service in style. Our buckles are designed at the intersection of timeless, refined esthetics and enduring utility - the ideal fusion of art and function, of style and simplicity.
The archetypal Japanese surface design of the Wave buckle first appears around 1300 AD. Japanese crests or “mon” such as this one were often original carved in wood and used as block prints. Each buckle is hand finished and will wear and antique beautifully. Individual patinas are unique and will change over time, dependent on the physical environment of the wearer. Buckle owners report that their buckles become more elegant the longer they are worn.
The price of each buckle includes a belt. Each belt has been made to perfectly compliment the unique structural design and esthetic of your new buckle, which was built to last, literally, and beautifully, for generations. Our belts are made of full grain, impeccably tanned, 10 ounce hides purchased from the Horween tannery in Chicago, the oldest of it’s kind in the United States, known for leather of unsurpassed quality. All leathers are vegetable tanned and have been chosen for their durability, suppleness and beauty.
The belt you order today may well be the finest you will ever own and will last for many years to come.
Belt straps are available in a luxurious black, and a rich chocolate brown.
As you order now from our online store, please be sure to order one size larger than actual waist size.
