Loving the obi belt style…

Need an obi belt?

Of course you do 🙂

Why our obi belts?

Our obi belt / tie belt and coat belt styles are very high quality, using 100% leathers and are all made in the UK – not the same as the cheap leather ones you find mass produced in the Far East for the High Street.

Made to an exacting design by a perfectionist that listens keenly to her customers wishing to please them and who has specialised in belts since 2009, they have become a firm favourite of Vogue around the world and Paris Vogue even purchased some for their stock cupboard for shoots!

These Julian Carter / Once Upon a Belt brand obi belts won’t roll up as you wear them and are made using leathers that are colour-fast to protect your clothes, along with our special lining.

Ready to shop for a tie belt? We have a more limited than normal choice of colours and style for you at Julian Carter Belts at Etsy owing to market conditions. They were also once sold at the ecommerce website in case you have bought before – you can be guaranteed that they are the same quality.

We have more in stock we are putting online bit by bit. We’ve been delayed by Covid-19 and Meleniak Ltd/ full ecommerce website closing down. Contact marta to find out what colours are available now although not online yet.

Contact us: Any questions can be directed via Etsy, message via facebook or call +44 1202 375 775 leaving your details for a callback.
