Breakthrough Belt Lacing Now
Available in North America
is now the exclusive North American distributor
of the breakthrough Mato Lacing. It eliminates
lacing marks and rust that galvanized lacing
often leaves on the linens. Our Mato Lacing is
stainless steel, forms a flat profile in line
with the belt ends and ensures the belts remain
perfectly straight once laced. It's so superior
to the old style lacing that we include it as
standard on orders for all of our more than 50
types of belts.
