The Story Behind MARKFRED

MARKFRED has been around since the Bronze Age, as an idea, but fully formed in 2015. Intelligent men decided in a dimly-lit, smoke-filled back room that, for too long, men have been wrapping inferior tools around their waists. A gavel pounded a walnut table and a plan was set in motion. American leather, Italian tanning, Texan hands. Upton.

MARKFRED was created with a purpose. To establish an understanding that belts are belts and not accessories. We set a goal to reinvent a category that is rarely appreciated and deserves to stand on its own. We have taken the time to source the finest materials and created a product that embodies quality in every sense of the word. We believe in a personalized experience that focuses on attention to detail and service, not mass production. Our belts are handmade from leather raised on American ranches and tanned in Italy. Each belt is individually numbered and custom-sized.

Some say perfection is subjective. We respectfully disagree.
