August 2011: The style and quality of Druh Belts & Buckles that golfers have come to expect from the brand has been the key driver of growing demand for the design and delivery of custom buckles teamed with Druh’s extensive range of leather and snakeskin straps.
Druh Belts & Buckles, instantly recognisable thanks to the distinctive ‘db’ insignia on all its buckles, is now producing specially-designed buckles for a range of clients within the golf industry.
Whilst Druh was first called upon by John ‘Wild Thing’ Daly to design a lion buckle in a variety of colours, the company is now producing buckles for the likes of Red Bull, The Tavistock Cup, the Paul Lawrie Foundation and numerous golf clubs around the world including Pinehurst in the US, South Africa’s Erinvale Golf Club, Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket and the Hong Kong Golf Club.
Indeed The Open Champion, Darren Clarke, was wearing a Druh belt during his stunning performance at Royal St George’s that boasted a specially-moulded buckle with his own personal DCC logo that was produced by Druh and is now available for purchase at www.druhbeltsandbuckles.com
The consistent style and quality of Druh Belts – all handmade in Thailand using the finest quality leather and snakeskin – has seen the brand become a firm favourite amongst the pro ranks on both the European and Asian Tour and boasts English superstar Lee Westwood as a brand ambassador alongside Swede Robert Karlsson, Ireland’s Paul McGinley, Dane Thomas Bjorn and Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee.
The leather belt range is handmade in ten water snakeskins, ranging from turquoise to pink and 15 leathers in different embossed styles, from crocodile to ostrich effect, and is available in over 30 different colours. Druh’s collection of over 50 different interchangeable buckles in brushed nickel, polished silver or gold or ceramic mean their belts can be changed to suit the wearer both on and off the course.
Available through the internet at www.druhbeltsandbuckles.com allows golfers to design their own unique belt by choosing their own belt and buckle combination. Druh Belts retail at UK£125/US$200 for snakeskin and UK£79/$125 for leather and guarantees that the snakes used in production are not a protected species.
