Superb Stashbelt Money Belts For Travel
One of my favorite television shows in Canada is a weekly program specifically featuring a variety of entrepreneurs. They pitch 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 highly successful investors.
A great show where a number of these entrepreneurs have gone on to establish very successful businesses over the years.
The Founders of StashBelt successfully pitched their unique product and mission to the panel a few years ago, and were successful!
These belts are handmade in Kenya, made from genuine graze-fed and organic leather only.
Check out the short video below, giving you a glimpse of what these quality money belts have done 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 myself, for our upcoming journey to India. One of the main travel products strongly recommended by other seasoned travelers, was to be sure to wear a money belt.
This, especially for the type of traveling we were going to do while in India.
I recall many times while traveling abroad, that I had wished I had a money belt with me.
After watching the episode and pitch made by the Stashbelt entrepreneurs, I knew immediately that these were the belts I definitely wanted. I made a point of contacting them immediately!
Their business model so reminded me of one other business with similar traits.
The organization known as 📖 Better World Books. This is a very similar business model, helping those less fortunate to read.
Quality Hand Crafted Stashbelt Money Belts For Travel
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.
I knew right away these were quality hand made 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.
The belt is made so the stick can be easily 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, right inside your belt on the USB stick.
Well done Stashbelt!!
StashBelts Business And Their Mission Statement
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 the same as with another of my favorite charitable organizations I am involved with known as – Kiva.
Kiva is an organization that 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 companys business model!
I just received our belts in the mail and they look absolutely fantastic! They are beautifully hand crafted quality leather belts.
Hand Made Quality Leather On All Stashbelt Money Belts
These belts were excellent for 7 weeks traveling throughout India. Especially, when we were in very congested areas in the towns and cities.
Even though we never felt unsafe at any time, it was always nice to know we didn’t have to worry about carrying our money around in our pockets.
Unfortunately after 7 successful years of operation, Stashbelt has decided at this time to close their business. We hope to see them back one day very soon, and continue on with producing these quality belts and helping to support others at the same time.
Safe and Healthy Travels!
