Belt Buckle St Kilda

Belt Buckle St Kilda

Finest quality traditional Belt Buckle made in solid 100% lead free Pewter. Made to take a traditional 2 1/4" kilt belt, which can be purchased separately.

Our company was founded by members of the St Kilda diaspora, so it seemed only right we should honour this with a design. St Kilda is a small group of remote islands to the north west of Uist. The ancient community on the islands was mostly cut off from the other islands by wild seas, and they were evacuated from the islands in 1930. The last St Kildan died in 2016. It's unclear if there was an actual Saint by the name of Kilda, no one by that name is recorded elsewhere, but many local saints have likewise been lost to history. Scholars argue today whether the name may be a confused corruption by several map makers, but there had been no one accepted theory. 

Hand-cast and finished in our Glasgow workshop, by our highly trained craftsmen. Size 10cm by 6.7cm.
