25 Year Warranty

Thank you for choosing to support our growing family leather company with your purchase of one of our hand crafted leather belts! We are so confident in the materials and craftsmanship of these belts that we want to back our product with a 25 Year Limited Warranty. 
You’ll notice that in our shop, we build quite a bit of horse tack. In order for tack to do its job, it has to be made with the right materials. Your belt will come from the same leather that we use to built our horse tack. With proper care, quality made horse tack is often passed down to the posterity of cowboys for generations. When the day comes that an old bridle is hung up on the wall, it’s usually because it’s become a keepsake to the family, not because it broke. This is the type of quality we’re going for.
Therefore, we at Arnoldsen Leather co, LLC warranty this product (your new belt) against any material and/or craftmanship defects under regular use and proper maintenance for two and a half decades. This is the average lifespan of a ranch horse and seems to fit our line of work.
We work hard to produce some of the finest quality leather belts on the market. Slight color variations, minor imperfections, and wear of the edges over time are to be expected for a real leather belt. You should know that the color of your belt may not perfectly match what you see in the pictures on the website. Such is the nature of a real leather product. The shade of the leather varies slightly from hide to hide.
This warranty shall be void if the belt has been mistreated, modified in any way (including adding holes), or used as a tow strap or anything other than holding up your pants! This warranty does NOT include a replacement belt for significant weight gain, or weight loss.
As time goes on, you should expect this belt to wear, taking on a natural change in color (for example our buck brown belts may get darker with dirt, sweat, and age), this and any other natural wear is to be expected and appreciated! These natural changes are not counted as a defect and shall not be covered under warranty. This warranty shall also be void if the belt has been traded or resold to another owner. 
If you feel that your belt appears to be defective, wait to ship your belt back to us until after we’ve approved your return. You can contact the maker directly by sending an email titled “Warranty Issue” to info@arnoldsenleather.com. We will respond promptly and we will be reasonable. 
How the process will work is you contact us by calling or sending us an email. We will discuss and review the issue and if the belt is found to be defective, we will either repair what needs to be repaired or we will replace the belt. Should the day come that we change the design or material of the belt, we will give you in store credit equal to the original sale price of the belt.
Please keep a copy of the original proof of purchase (for example the box or a printed recite). This way we can still honor the 25 year Limited Warranty if we cannot find your name in our records, or if the belt was purchased as a gift to you.
This warranty does not cover hardware (i.e. the buckle or Chicago screws). This warranty also does not include  charges connected with shipping, freight, and/or any other fees associated with shipping the belt to and from our shop. 
Why do we want to warranty your belt for two and a half decades? Why not! For centuries, belt makers across the continents have used quality, full grain, one hundred percent through and through LEATHER for their belts. It wasn’t until recently that belts have started to become more and more “disposable” and made out of pleather. Pleather is imitation leather and has a very short lifespan. Our belts once walked the earth eating grass and saying moo and we’ll back that claim for 25 years. 
As our valued customer, we want you to be more than confident in your purchase of one of our belts. We assure you that we will continue to source the highest quality materials and we will craft every single belt that passes through our shop with integrity, never cutting corners—besides the tip of the belt! So treat you belt with love, and it will be a treasure for decades to come.
