Inspired by the Hollyhock, the Mija is a subtle and refined reflection of our bestseller. Streamlined for casual everyday wear, yet elevated enough for a dressy affairs.
Material: Made from smooth calfskin leather and velvety nubuck leather backing
Hardware: Silver-stone shined hardware buckle, rings and belt-tip
Dimensions 1 inch tall, fits well with a standard jean
Care: Your Déhanche belt was crafted using the most luxurious skins, which have unique tonal variations, marks, or veins that are natural features and should be considered characteristics of your product, not imperfections.
To ensure that your belt ages beautifully, we recommend following these care instructions:
- Avoid exposing it to water, oil, perfume, or cosmetic products. If your belt does come into contact with water, gently blot it with a soft, light-colored absorbent cloth.
- Keep it away from excessive heat and intense light.
- Refrain from rubbing it against rough or abrasive surfaces, as this may cause light scratches. Instead, gently massage any scratches with a soft, dry cloth.
- When not in use, store your Déhanche belt in its protective velvet bag. Avoid storing it in hot, humid, or poorly ventilated areas, and never store it in a plastic bag.
Fit: Meant to be worn higher on the hips
Responsible measures: Vegetable leather without chrome metals. Zamak allow metal which can be entirely melted down and reused.
Determining the size of a belt to wear can vary depending on if you like to wear it higher on the waist or lower around the hips. On each product page, we have a size calculator that helps you understand what size we recommend.
Another way to determine your appropriate belt size is to measure a belt that you already own. Start the tape measure at the second hole from the end measure to where it meets the buckle and round to the nearest centimeter. If you measure 80 centimeters, you will need a size Small.
If you want to style the belt over outerwear, we suggest you order one size up

Déhanche has calculated the carbon emission as 27.19kg CO2e, or 0.03 tons. Based on the recommendation of Doconomy, we have benchmarked our internal carbon tax at $130 per ton, which far above the industry average.
