Rustico was founded when Isaac Childs and a few friends began on a journey to create a better journal.
Today Rustico is a team of artisans from all around the world (over 10 different countries) and we make all of our leather goods in Utah by hand. We hold two principles incredibly close: (1) make high-quality leather goods in an environmentally friendly way and (2) get outside and live life fully.
The Rustico men's leather belt has been a developing product for quite a while now. We decided to release it here on Kickstarter because it would allow us to reach a larger group of people as well as offer a much lower price point. Basically, we wanted to get the belt into the hands of as many people as possible and knew that Kickstarter would help us do that.
See our company's Google Customer Reviews.
By taking the proper time to develop this product and test the prototypes, we have been able to come up with a exceptional final product that we are fully confident in.
The belt sizes are: 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42 and 44 measured from the center of seven holes. Belts will have a little bit of wiggle room to be slightly larger or smaller, but we recommend backers order the size closest to their waist size.
The Reward Options
By pledging a certain amount of money, you are pre-purchasing one or multiple Rustico Belts. We will use the money from the pledges to make the belts, which we will then ship by the end of October. You can choose from a single belt to all three belts to the larger bundle rewards. Every option will allow you to pick the color of belt as well as the hardware. We will send a personalized survey to every backer after the 30 day campaign to get their belt(s) color(s), hardware (matte nickel or antique brass) and belt size selection.
We put our estimated shipping date as October of this year and are confident that we can achieve that goal. Hopefully we'll be able to deliver even earlier.
Find the products pictured above on our website: Highway Wristband, Traveler Journal, Money Clip, Scout Satchel, Super Loop Keychain, Survivor Satchel +, Laptop Sleeve, Sidekick, and Copper Water Bottle. Refer to the images above or the pledge amounts to see which products go with what pledge amount. Each pledge is a significant discount compared to full retail pricing. The Laptop Sleeve in reward $800 is available in any laptop size.
Our handcrafting process incorporates 12 different steps from raw materials to a finished belt. Each step is executed by an experienced artisan who ensures that it is done correctly. We do not cut any corners.
Risks and challenges
As we make all of our products by hand here in our Utah studio and have thoroughly explored the belt making process, we are confident in our ability to fulfill all backers by October of this year. Additionally, we have already located leather and hardware suppliers in order to source the materials needed when we get funded.
That being said, we realize that unpredictable things can happen in the leather industry and are committed to being completely transparent throughout the entire process. We always take care of our customers and deliver the beautiful products that they deserve.
