Most belts sold in the world are made from leather, and most of them are made of thick, solid cow hide. Cow hide is stable, available in sufficient quantities, and cattle hides are large enough to produce belts with a waist size of 1.7 metres. Vegetable tanned leather is mostly used to make belts because of the higher filling ability of vegetable tannins that make it strong and solid enough for a belt. It is common for belts to have decorative embossing, stitching or braiding.
In China, belts are produced at a very low cost and therefore sold at a very low price. Cheap belts often consist of several layers. Some layers are then made of cheaper materials such as cardboard, foam or plastic. It is therefore important to check carefully whether it is really a sturdy belt or even real leather.
