Ballard Belt

$42.00 $29.00

Brand: Alchemy Goods

Tying an inner tube around your waist keeps the pants up like a charm, but it tends not to be very adjustable. Adding some Alchemy Goods design sensibility to that idea, they created this deluxe version that functions beautifully and dresses up or down. The inner tube is so incognito, it'll be your secret that yesterday's blowout is today's belt.  Belt height 1.25", comes with chrome roller buckle, recycled cog buckle sold separately.

Their mission is simple:  "Turning useless into useful." Alchemy is the medieval science of turning lead into gold. More generally, it means magically turning something of lesser value into something of greater value. For Alechemy Goods, the value isn't economical so much as ecological. They look for materials that are normally discarded that might have value with a little bit of imagination and some hard work. Every Alchemy Goods bag or accessory purchased represents one less part of our world destroyed. That's why all their products should have the highest possible recycled content, but also be superbly functional and aesthetically pleasing. The logo intentionally looks like the periodic table. The number in the upper right hand corner represents the percent (by weight) of recycled material in the product you purchased. This Seattle based company is making some very useful things indeed.
