Elizabethan Boat Club (Old Westminsters)


The Elizabethan Boat Club is reputedly the oldest rowing club in the world, with official records dating back to 1813.

Pink was chosen as the school's colour for the rowing match against Eton College in 1837 - again considered to be the oldest rowing match in the world.

The Elizabethan belt was commissioned by a member and is based on the club tie in a vertical design of black, pink and light blue stripes.

The old Elizabethan Boat Club tie is not a tie at all; it's a Manyatta belt.

All of our belts are hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads.

We use the highest quality leather to ensure our belts are extremely long lasting and durable.

This belt is 1.5 inches wide.




We believe in being totally honest with our customers. Like a bespoke suit or pair of shoes, outstanding craftsmanship takes time. When the order is placed, the mamas in Kenya start beading your belt, utilising their cultural and ancestral skills. Once this is complete, the belt is sent to us in the UK. For this reason, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
