It’s always fascinating when parcels arrive at Foxley HQ for us to delve into and explore. Lifting the lid, we were greeted by a trio of white brushed cotton presentation bags with black drawstrings, proudly emblazoned with the Cotswolds British luxury brand Bhoid’s name and logo. But what lay inside?
Made by hand to the highest standard using 100% vegetable tanned leather, complete with a solid cast round brass buckle available in a polished or nickel plated finish, the Mull belt is named after the stunning picturesque Hebridean island of Mull, just off the west coast of Scotland. Embodying the spirit of Mull, these belts radiate both strength and beauty. If left unpolished, over time the polished brass finish will develop a beautiful patina due to its uncoated nature.
Designed to be worn threaded counter clockwise, the Mull is unisex and available in Ultramarine Blue or Forest Green. Mull is 1.5 inches wide, making it the perfect accessory for jeans and other clothing with full loops. All belts are sized to fit on the middle hole. The Bhoid Mull collection is available in sizes 28 to 38 inches at a price of £89, available from www.bhoid.co.uk
Also included in this package of prestige was a different belt by Bhoid, the Stornoway 1.5inch leather belt, which comes in chestnut brown (the option we received), London tan and Stornoway grey. Catering for all sizes this belt is available in 28 to 40 inches, Stornoway takes its name from the largest settlement in the Outer Hebrides, and like the Mull, is both strong and beautiful in appearance. Also handmade in the UK from top quality vegetable tanned leather, the Bhoid Stornoway belt is the only belt you could ever need.
The one key difference between the Mull and the Stornoway is the Stornoway’s square buckle. This comes on either a polished brass finish or a silver nickel plating depending on the belt colour. Like the Mull, if the buckle is unpolished it will develop a beautiful patina finish. The Stornoway is available at a price of £89 from www.bhoid.co.uk
Each belt comes with a buckle chosen by Bhoid, which differs from belt to belt in both colour and shape, meticulously handpicked to complement the colour and style perfectly. Bhoid also create bespoke sizes upon request.
All belts arrive in a little square box, inside which lies a brushed cotton presentation bag, emblazoned with Bhoid’s logo, which has been beautifully encased in Bhoid’s bespoke tissue paper featuring a repeated pattern of the brand’s logo to ensure it arrives on your doorstep safely.
