“THE AVERAGE GIVES THE WORLD ITS DURABILITY. THE UNUSUAL ITS VALUE“ OSCAR WILDE
And so it is hardly surprising that many people appreciate the value of authentic products which are processed by hand. In 2008 a group of young creatives founded the label DUKES FINEST VINTAGE ARTISAN in Vienna. Worldwide, the designers were looking for old belts from Army stocks. After buying them Dukes Finest Vintage Artisan began to extensively restoring them. All belts are cleaned, re-sewn, polished, shaped, painted – everything made by hand. The designers were inspired by art, nature and trends. The formal language of the hippies, samurais, Aboriginal or epochs such as Art Nouveau are additional inspiration. The success was so enormous that the range of products will extend. Bags, T-shirts and jackets by Dukes are planned. We are excited because currently there are no belts that are more trendy. Dukes belts are just the right accessory for a vintage jeans from DENHAM or PRPS. Authentic collectibles with heart and a history.
