The Dahlman Belt
The saumur belt is a Dahlman classic, made in the workshop at Fortunstræde since the 1940 ́s featuring the saumur hook closure - traditionally used for horse harnesses.
It's also known as "the Architect Belt" because it was very popular amongst some of the great Danish architects such as Arne Jacobsen and Børge Mogensen back in the 50's and 60's.
It was originally only made in tan, but this changed when Arne Jacobsen ordered a special black version for dress and evening occasions.
The belt is part of the Danish Arts Foundations collection of Danish Arts and Crafts.
