Large belt for Burgundian gown
Wide belt used by women wearing Burgundian gown (2nd half of 15th century).
The width seems to be between 5 and 10cm.
The buckle and the endstrap can be very elaborate and constitute real jewels.
The eyelets are framed by decorative metal parts (often flowers) with holes (not present on the photos).
The strap can be made of different materials (woven band, silk, velvet, leather, fabric with leather core).
The belts in the photo are made of a leather core wrapped in a cotton velvet sheath. Seams are not visible.

"Demi-ceint" belt
The demi-ceint belt is a feminine belt that appeared in the 14th century and became very common in the 15th century.
It can be made of leather, woven in wool or silk, or of leather covered with velvet.
At each end of the belt, two metal pieces called "capsulae", more or less elaborate, are attached by a chain. The adjustment is done by a hook directly on the chain which can be long and finished by a decorative pendant at its end.
