Crafted in Denmark since 1989
Premium quality with focus on design and crafted in Den
mark. That is the essence of Bosswik and our primary brand
We are belt makers - leather craftsmen, artisans and efficient
Vegetable tanned full-grain leather is the essence
At Bosswik there is nothing more important than leather. It is
our specialty and our passion.
Leather has an amazing durability and it only gets more
beautiful over time when it gains patina. The leather comes
from oxhides from European tanneries where it is vegetable
This tanning process uses natural elements such as bark, moss
and chestnuts. Only the oxhides can provide leather thick
enough for belt straps. Oil and wax are applied to the leather
from the tanneries in order to ensure just the right wonderful
sensation of touch when you hold it in your hands.
The excellence in leather is full-grain leather, which we use
as much as possible. It is the top layer of the oxhide where
the hair has been. Over time it will develop an incredible
patina. It is also here the leather fibers really come
together in a material that is nigh on impossible to wear
down. In fact it is one of the few materials that will only
improve and become more exquisite when being used.
Contrary to common practice in the fashion and textile
industry, we manufacture our products ourselves - right in the
middle of Denmark.
We are experts when it comes to leather and how to process it
in order to craft high quality belts. Our leather comes from
oxhides from European tanneries – primarily Italian tanneries
with a long tanning tradition. They care just as deeply about
quality as we do and to ensure that animal welfare is at its
The belts are made in a combination of handcraft and modern
production. The machines help to ensure the efficiency of the
production, but no belt is ever going to be realized without
people involved. Skilled people with rich experience cut,
glue, dye, sow, and fit from hides to finished belts.
Because Bosswik as a manufacturer sells directly to retailers
we can use materials of higher quality but still keep a
competitive price for the belts. This makes the belts more
available to everyone. Production, warehouse, and
administration are kept together in one location in Denmark in
order to provide the best possible logistic solution.
Bosswik was founded in 1989 and the experience of making belts
extends through family business in generations. We also use
our knowledge of belt and leather production to make private
label for numerous brands in retail and wholesale.
A natural material
We manufacture responsibly – not because it is required but
because it is the right thing to do.
By choosing to retain our production in Denmark, Bosswik
comply with one of the world’s most strict codes of labour
rights facilitating a premier welfare system. Setting the bar
this high we strive to source and affect suppliers and
partners to show the same level of care for the people
involved in making Bosswik leather goods come to life. An
example of improved working conditions is the fact that
Bosswik uses water-based edge colouring rather than
turpentine-based colouring, though the latter is more durable.
However, it is not the best for the people applying the paint.
The leather used for Bosswik’s products is only vegetable
tanned leather. This tanning process uses natural elements
like bark, chestnut, and moss to extract tannins rather than
heavy metal and unnecessary chemicals in chrome tanning. All
of Bosswik’s affiliated tanneries take precaution and have the
necessary installations to make sure that all waste water from
the tanning process is subject to water treatment. None of
this water is released directly into the nature affecting wild
All leather comes from Western European cattle, primarily
French cattle. The tanneries have great focus on animal
welfare and only use farms that allow the cattle to live a
full life in free range. The hides for the leather are a
by-product of meat production to ensure that resources are
used most responsibly and breeding is kept sustainable.
