Recent Works: Leather Belt "Mattr ok Megin"
If you are looking for a good leather belt with some kind of viking style decoration, you may have realized that something like that is quite hard to find out there.
Either you have those really nice authentic looking ones with great metal buckles and strap ends that fit perfectly to viking costume for the next reenactment event - but less perfect to your every day outfit.
Or you find those with poorly embossed and boring celtic knotwork patterns.
So I decided to do something for you guys and girls out there.
The inspiration for this belt comes partly from the early Viking Age ornaments of the Oseberg period. (It's my favourite style btw.)
It is one of the most typical viking styles and is less celtic influenced.
The runic inscription "Mattr ok Megin" is thought to summon the power and the might of the individual who will wear this piece one day.
It is 4.5 cm/1.8 inches broad while the the ends are cut out somewhat narrower (ca. 1.5 in) to ensure that almost every common buckle should fit.
It is a snap-on belt - so you can fasten your buckle with two snaps.
It is 125 cm/49.2 inches long (excl. buckle)
