We love to support family business, where the focus on authentic craftsmanship is as strong as it ever was. Whether in store or online, you can find works of art from the very heart of South America, where our time in the polo fields of La Pampa inspired us to bring beautiful, handstitched polo belts to the wider world. Each belt takes 4 to 5 hours to create, and the stitching of traditional pampa designs is so carefully intricate that it can only be achieved by the hand of a true artisan. Below are our favourite picks from A Hume's collection of pampeano belts.

All of our belts are unisex, and many are available in skinny sizes, for smaller frames. A skinny belt can be wrapped at the waist or threaded easily through a pair of jodphurs.

The jugadoro is totally timeless, with deep navy and cream threads that remind us instantly of a Breton shirt and holidays by the sea.

Pair your jugadoro with a pair of dark chinos for formal occasions, and wear with a pale blue shirt to bridge the contrast in this striking design.


The escocia polo belt takes you halfway across the world, on a journey from the polo fields of Argentina to its namesake in Scotland. This is a wonderful belt to purchase at A Hume, who is based in the very landscape that inspired the escocia.

In designing this belt, we have combined fresh green, with pink and violet, just like the famous Scottish primrose and the purple heather that sweeps over the sides of the crags and glens in the highlands.

The multi is a wonderfully vibrant belt that tells the story of our roots in La Pampa, Argentina. With saddlery threads in sky blue, racing green, bright red, cream and navy, there is no colour in your wardrobe that won't be complemented with the edition of a multi threaded through the belt loops.

Each polo belt is rounded off with the addition of an antique-style brass buckle.




On the principe, you will find cream coloured pampa diamonds, set out like crowns around the belt that each encompass a single ruby red panel in their centre.

The principe is a regal design, that shows much more of our gorgeous vegetable tanned leather. Our signature Havana brown Argentinian leather forms the band of all of our polo belts. It's thick yet supple quality is what sets our belts apart from the rest, with stunning handstitching achieved using traditional, wax-dipped saddlery threads.

The hermoso features that classic combination of navy blue and pale pink, with alternating panels featuring pampa diamonds. The handstitched pattern allows for traditional diamond shapes to be displayed in the leather.

All of the belts in our collection are crafted from premium grade stirrup leather, vegetable tanned in a traditional manner and finished to give that buttery soft, irresistible feel for which we are known.
