Coronado Americana Ranger Belts
The design of the Ranger Belt was adopted from a cinching technique used in horse tack that allows a strap to be tightened without pinching the horse's hair in the buckle. The Texas Rangers adapted this technique into the design of a belt in the 1840's, when they began using the new Colt Walker six-shooter, which used holsters that required wider belts. Therefore, this belt style of two-layered leather in the front is named after the Texas Rangers.
Made of Horween Dublin leather, a cow leather which is known for its stability and lightness. Among experts it is the perfect leather for belts, purses and bags. It is vegetable tanned and then treated with a recipe of oils and emollients thats been used for more than 100 years. The infused oils give this leather a rustic character and different color variations.
