This Alemannic Leather belt is crafted from thick, black leather. It has a buckle, chape and three decorative plates - these are made from zinc alloy with an antiqued silver finish. The metal fittings have been riveted into the leather and the belt is adjustable with plenty of room to add holes to adjust to size.

The Alemanni were a confederation of Germanic tribes, who were noted by the Romans in the later Roman Empire. Originally, Alemanni may have been a rough, approximate Roman term for a regional association of tribes who identified themselves as the Suebi. Their memory as ‘’savage barbarians’’ may have been maligned by the Romans due to centuries for conflict between them and their northern, Germanic neighbors.

The Alemanni not only had open and direct warfare between their tribes and the Empire’s Legions, but as Roman strength buckled from the Gothic and Hunnic incursions, so too would the Alemanni raid across the border, contributing to the descending spiral of mayhem that crumbled the frontiers of the late Roman Empire. They would famously ally with Attila the Hun in his bid to subjugate Rome, though they would inevitably be defeated with Attila. The Alemanni existed afterwards as the Kingdom of Alamannia, until being absorbed into the Frankish Kingdom of Clovis I.

This belt is not only a fitting belt in the style of the Alemanni, but it also well-represents the other Germanic tribes of the late Roman Empire and Migration Period, as well as the early Medieval Period. The design is taken from a belt found at Balingen, Germany, that dates to the 5th-6th Century AD.
