This belt, with its aluminium openwork buckle, has a refined design of two coloured interlace along its length. This is an unusual pattern. Each single strand is painted in two colours side by side. When two colours are normally suggested by Bain the design would be formed as two-strand interlace.

The dark-brown leather pieces, with yellow and green interlace, are stitched together. The buckle is engraved with a simple knotwork design highlighted in green and orange-yellow. These colours draw the eye to the simple figure-of-eight twist of knotwork.
