Probably, belt was the most popular accessory in the Middle Ages. Men and women, noblemen and common people, merchants and crafters, theologians and gentlemen of the long robe, civilians and military men wore belts. The fact is that popular medieval clothing did not have any pockets. Very few things could be put into the knapsack or scrip. Many articles of daily necessity should be kept close at hand: for example, pouch or waist pack (French “aumonière”) for alms. Physicians and scrivener were belting small boxes with medicines or writing materials. Noble knights and common soldiers were carrying armament and weapon on the belts.

Way of belts’ tying was a typical feature in these times. Belt loops had been invented later, but a length of accessory was sizeable enough, and sometimes it was reaching up to two meters. After fixation of the required length with buckle, free end had been wrapped around the belt. Strapend was passed through the formed loop and fixed a belt.


Like the buckles, strapends had being attached at the leather belt with rivets or small pins. Metal usually covered both sides of belt, but there were also one-sided accessories, which were covering only outer side. The end of belt could fill space inside strapend, or go into specific narrow slits on the front side.

Strapends had different and sometimes extravagant design. There were pointed, sharp, rounded shapes, unique hammered ornaments, images of the hosts of heaven, animals and birds, monograms and heraldic symbols – none of strapends looked like another one. As belt strapends were always located from the front near of buckle, both of them had being made in one style: then these metal elements were forming single set. Survived samples are kept in world museums and represent stunning skills of the medieval artisans.
