Starting Small

Humble Beginnings

Ben decided to make himself a belt in 2005, and that first one seemed to turn out very well, so with that, a new love affair began.

After a year and a half of making firmer vegetable tanned leather belts for his clothing label 'El Cato', he decided to give into the requests of customers and friends to make some softer womens belts. That was late 2006, and Charlie Middleton was born.

Jump forward to now and the range consists of hundreds of products, and thousands of options, yet every item is still lovingly handmade in the Sydney workshop.
