and soon become the leader in HAND AND TAILOR MADE CUSTOM AND LUXURY WEIGHTLIFTING BELTS at least in Italy and some part of Europe too. I'm Daniele and I'm the Boss , I had this idea just because I need my own custom belt; I browse the web and can't find it, at least I found just one who can make it, but not as I like so I decide to make it by myself and the story started.
I have a background as Aeronautic engineer and then have been a top Manager in couple of large organization, after that I move to my own Company business, I run it for some years and finally I sold my shares and work as Market consultant and Market Manager for some other Companies in various fileds, travelling the world. In the meantime I always made something creative and I create the first luxury pet shop in my home town, actually in my country, and now I'm here!
Coming back to the matter, I show my belts around in various bodybuilding contest, expo and gyms then many people ask for their own belt and here are some examples For some lucky circumstances I was able to be in contact with some of the big athletes of the world and I had the chance to make their belts too. We still produce a signed belt line for some of them. look at the web site to learn more: www.tbelt.it
We promote Camps as well with some of them and we hope we could establish a regular Camp season with many of them for encourage people on their way to the healthy life and, why not, to their PRO career.
Risks and challenges
Since we start we grew up quite fast and we start produce hand made fashion belts by fine Italian leather, python, crocodile and some other exotics; wallets and key holders, luxury travel/gym bags and some apparel, but our focus is still on our first love, custom weightlifting belts! The idea become reality and I could be satisfied about it, but now I have a dream! Make my company worldwide recognizable as a valuable Brand, very Luxury and Exclusive not only for the price, but because any one can make his own stuff and customize it as he likes from leather to decoration, Swarovski crystal or embroidery. This is the Exclusivity and Luxury. No one else will have the same, never.
