Superb Money Belts for Traveling
One of my favorite television shows in Canada is a weekly television program specifically featuring a variety of entrepreneurs pitching their unique business ideas to a handful of successful business men and women. These candidates are seeking financial assistance and expertise from this group of investors.
A great show where a number of these entrepreneurs have gone on to establish very successful businesses!
The Founders of StashBelt successfully pitched their unique product and mission to the panel and were successful. Today they offer the world’s premiere money belt which is handmade in Kenya from genuine graze-fed and organic leather only.
Check out the short video below, giving you a glimpse of what these quality money belts are doing for the people in Kenya.
StashBelt Money Belts for Travel and More
As luck had it, I just happened to be in the market for a couple of money belts for my son and me on our upcoming journey to India. One of the main travel products strongly recommended by family and other seasoned travelers was to be sure to wear a money belt for the type of traveling we were going to do in India.
In fact, over the years there have been many times that I had wished I had a money belt with me while traveling in different parts of the world.
After watching the episode and pitch made by the Stashbelt entrepreneurs, I knew immediately that these were the belts I definitely wanted and contacted them immediately. Their business model so reminded me of one other business with similar traits, that of Better World Books. Another great and similar business model with a great cause as well.
Quality Hand Crafted StashBelts
As you saw in the video, these are high quality belts that are painstakingly crafted by devoted workers in Kenya. The company uses top quality genuine graze-fed and organic leather only in their products. As soon as I received my belts and opened the package, I could immediately feel and smell the fine leather and new right away these were quality products!
Besides having the full length 18 inch hidden zipper on the backside of the belt, one other very unique feature to the belt and included with each one, is the addition of a very thin 4 GB USB stick which can be slipped into a part of the belt as well. Another superb addition added to these belts and a great idea these guys thought of! You can now keep scanned copies of your passport, visas and any other important documents should you lose the originals during your travels.
Well done Stashbelt!! 🙂
StashBelts Business and Mission
StashBelt truly believes that for real advance for Kenya and all of Africa for that matter, it will come from “trade not aid, pride not pity.” Just as with my favorite charitable organization I am involved with “Kiva”, they help those help themselves, thus creating employment and growth in countries around the world. With your purchase of any StashBelt product, you are helping Kenya and its people by creating more jobs and a better way of life for Kenyans.
Ten per cent of all profits made from sales are put into The StashBelt Foundation. Funds generated are then used to assist new businesses that show that they can make a significant difference to their community.
Jonah Brotman – co-founder of StashBelt;
“We are proud to employ up to 23 Kenyan leather artisans based out of our factory in Nairobi. We pay well above market wages and focus on the “workers guild” model of apprenticeship so that our workers can one day open their own shops.”
I only wish many other businesses would follow this company’s business model! I just received our belts in the mail and they look absolutely fantastic! 🙂 They are beautifully hand crafted quality leather belts and I can’t wait to wear them on our upcoming travels throughout India!
