Recycled Packaging & Sustainable Practices
Traditional Argentine Craftsmanship
We employ time-honored leather working techniques to continue the century-old Argentine tradition of artisanal woven belts. Each belt is meticulously handcrafted by local artisans that have been carefully selected to work at our dedicated workshop in Buenos Aires.
We love Argentina’s many natural wonders and want to keep them safe from the effects of pollution and climate change. For this reason, all our packaging is made from post-consumer recycled content and printed with soy-based, non-toxic inks. We also treat our leather exclusively with vegetable-based tanning agents, ensuring that no harmful chemicals are released into the environment.
Balvanera products support local economies in Argentina. All of our belts are handwoven by women in the Buenos Aires region, providing a key source of income to local communities.
Balvanera and our suppliers aim to follow the guiding principles and best practices of the world’s leading environmental organizations.

Sizing & Product Information
How do I know my belt size?
A good rule of thumb is to select a belt that is at least 2 inches larger than your pants' size (e.g. a size 32 pant should wear a size 34 belt).
If your pant size is an odd number, increase the belt size by 3 inches (e.g. a size 33 pant should
wear a size 36 belt).
What are your belts made of?
All of our belts are made with top-grain, vegetable-tanned leather from Argentina and woven with organic cotton. The buckles for our Recoleta and Belgrano belts are made from rustic bronze, while the buckle for our Palermo belt is nickel-matte.
How do I care for my belt?
Our top-grain leather is designed to gracefully age over time, naturally softening and acquiring a worn-in look over the years. If you’d like to give your belt a newer look after several years of use, you may treat it with a light leather polish. If spot cleaning is necessary, we recommend hand washing with a mild detergent and letting the belt air dry.
Occasionally, a thread on the belt may come loose if it is caught on something. If this happens, we recommend pushing the end of the loose thread under the neighbouring threads and adding a drop of superglue to keep it in place.
