2017 Spring Shows
2017 Spring Shows
Truth Belts is excited to announce that we are exhibiting in six different cities this spring! We will be in three provinces across Canada: Quebec, Ontario, and Alberta.
In past spring seasons, we have been vendors at the Toronto One of a Kind Show and the Ottawa Originals Spring Craft Sale. For our 2017 spring shows, we decided to add more cities to the roster. In addition to Ottawa and Toronto, we will be in Montréal, St. Albert, Red Deer, and Edmonton. It will be our first time in Quebec, so bear with us, we’re still practising our French!
People can’t believe our belts are not leather! Attending one of these trade shows is an excellent opportunity to try on our super-cool belts in person. Get a feel for the materials used in our products, and learn about where they are made. We can help you figure out the size you need for a perfect fit!
Trade shows are not only a great place to find yourself a belt, but also a great place to find the perfect vegan gift for all the leather-eschewing people in your life.
We hope to see you at one of our 2017 spring shows!

The Seva flat belt — our top seller
We’re bringing a vast selection of colours and patterns of our our best-selling elastic flat belt for springtime. The popular instant-flat tummy Seva will be sold in lighter colours such as these beige diamond and mocha diagonal patterns. They look great with both dark and light-coloured pants! Dudes, these aren’t just for ladies. You can wear them too 🙂
The Seva’s cousin, the Karma, will be available in lots of colours too! Perfect for pants with smaller belt loops or if you need a skinny belt option.
***Note: the Seva is available in sizes S, M, L, and XL. The Karma is available in sizes S and L only.
Our collection of “genuine non-leather belts” is back!
Need something dressy? Got a summer wedding to attend? Or maybe you just need a new belt for the office? We’ve got lots of options to choose from! The Dyad (above, left) and the Gemini (above, right) are our reversible leather-look belts. If you are on a budget, these are definitely great picks. The buckles on these styles are cleverly designed so that you can flip them over to wear the straps as either black belts or brown belts.
Some other classic styles we’re bringing include the Smith (below, left) and Tilikum (below, right). These two belts are available in both black and brown. What’s really cool about our leather look belts is that they are made of layers of polyurethane and a durable recycled car tire filling.
Keep it casual with these heavy-duty, indestructible belts that will last you forever.
For years, we offered the Slug belt in black, and we have finally came out with a brown version. The Slug is the original indestructible belt from our collection, and it’s been one of our best-sellers. What makes it so durable? – It’s the fused nylon and vinyl material. Most belts are made of several layers, but our collection of indestructible belts are made one ONE flexible piece of material. No need to break these in!
Belts with Detachable buckles…
Got a collection of cool belt buckles at home? The Ox belt strap offers endless options, because you can attach any buckle you want! Available in both black and brown, you can purchase the strap on its own, or buy the Ox-Cirrus (Ox strap with vintage-style Cirrus buckle attached). It’s the only belt strap you will ever need.
For the spring and summer seasons, it’s all about highlighting your waist!
The faux-suede Queen belt comes in two unique finishes: brown with a vintage brass buckle for a boho look, and black with a silver buckle for more formal occasions. We love the Queen belt because it is so easy to adjust to size. – No holes on this one! Wear it over a cardigan or a body-con dress.
Ladies, we also love these tie-belt styles for the warmer seasons. Having the long ends flying in wind looks absolutely beautiful, especially on a gorgeous summer day. The Lotus (left), made of faux-suede, comes in black and a lovely brown-tan reversible style for contrast. For something lighter, we have the Avalon stretch wrap belt (center), made of a soft blend of cotton, spandex, and rayon. When worn over a large scarf (wrapped into a dress) at the beach, the Avalon looks AMAZING.
Finally, for a hybrid between the Lotus and Avalon, we have the Willow stretch wrap belt (right). The Willow is made of wide elastic and long, thick strips of cotton-spandex-rayon material to secure. You can wear it with the elastic against your back and leave the ends tied at the side. Alternately, you can have the elastic in the front and wrap the ends around for contrast (pictured). So many options!
Be sure to be on the look out for our other vegan accessories, such as our collection of funky suspenders, YOGAbands (carry strap for your yoga mat), wrist cuffs, and wallets. We didn’t forget about the little ones either! We will also have a small selection of adjustable elastic belts and suspenders for kids.
Of course, we didn’t forget about Moby and Buck, our trade show mascots.
Here is Moby (left) and Buck (right) pictured at the 2016 fall edition of the Toronto One of a Kind Show. They will be back at all 6 shows, sharing the duties of selling and sharing their love of non-leather belts. Find older brother Buck at our shows in St. Albert, Red Deer, and Edmonton. Moby will hold down the fort at our eastern shows in Montréal, Toronto, and Ottawa. Moo!
