Peachy Belts was set up in 2005 by Zoe Gibson who, having spent 15 years as an agent wanted to create her own line of product that was lovely, of the finest quality and useful! The idea of great everyday belts with detachable buckles was born.
Nico produces the images which Zoe uses in her catalogue and on her trade stand.
Zoe imports all of the leathers that are used for the range from Italy but has the belts made to her specification in Leicestershire ‘ It would be impossible to get them exactly as I want them if I could not sit down and explain what stitch size, cotton colour, lining thickness etc I would like for the belts – working with a local company is imperative to creating a gorgeous end product and maintaining the highest standards of production’ .
The buckles simply snap off the belts which means it is quick and easy to change from a simple everyday buckle, to a more decorative diamante for the evening. About 70% of the buckles are now exclusively designed by Zoe and produced from solid brass and pewter in England – the Swarovski crystal buckles are made to the Peachy specification in Italy. Each season there are new belt colours and buckle designs but it is the classic colours that are the biggest sellers – the vegetable tanned leathers that are used ensure that the belts will improve with wear and last – therefore customers choose a colour they know they will wear for many years.
