MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Jelt was established in 2014 as a cause-driven business. Our purpose is to create sustainable products that everyone needs, then use the proceeds to give back to our community, our country and the planet.
#Jelting is more than wearing a stylish, comfortable, grippy belt. It's about living life to the fullest, caring about the future of the planet, enriching the lives of our youth and giving back to those who protect our freedom.
Functional and socially impactful, Jelt elastic belts are made from recycled plastic bottles and are manufactured in Montana, USA.

HOW WE'RE MADE
In 2016, Jelt moved manufacturing from China to Montana. In doing so, we are able to control the quality in which our belts are built, while providing good paying jobs to our local workforce. Jelt is dedicated to sourcing from responsible companies. We source our raw elastic from a company in China that has access to high-quality sustainable yarn, from recycled plastic bottles. The sustainable yarn is woven into durable, strong elastic and finished with our signature grippy gel. Our buckles are sourced from companies in Taiwan and South Korea, both Bluesign Approved with certified Global Recycled Standards.
Raw materials are shipped to Montana where they are inspected, measured, cut, assembled, sewn, and packaged by local employees, who are provided a comfortable workspace, flexible schedules, and competitive wages.
