My husband is disgusted with "genuine cowhide" belts that barely last two years. He wants a solid leather belt, thank-you-very-much. He just ordered us up a bunch of leather and leather-working supplies. One of the excuses is that it can lead the children into silverwork. They don't have the strength to stamp and form metal, but they're strong enough to stamp leather. So they've all had fun stamping and painting leather this weekend. We'll see how it goes.

I know just how he feels -- I bought a belt from a leatherworker back when I was in college, and the only reason I wasn't still wearing it 20 years later was because my waistline expanded too much. Now I get "store-bought" belts and they split and otherwise fall apart in just a few years. I might be ordering a belt from ya'll in a few years if you start selling them. ;)
