The Story of Stash

Our Story, like most great travel stories, begins in an African jail cell.

Jeff Davis, a Canadian journalist, has been arrested by secret police while covering a political protest in Nairobi, Kenya. During interrogation, he is accused of being an American spy. In a flash, he produces a photocopy of his passport from a moneybelt his father gifted him. A few hours later, Jeff is freed.

Walking out of the jail, it occurs to Jeff that no savvy traveler should be without a quality moneybelt. And Kenya, with an abundant leather supply and skilled leatherworkers, is the perfect place to make them.

Today, after many iterations and improvements, StashBelt is proud to offer the finest leather moneybelts on the market. Top grain natural leather, exquisite hand craftsmanship, and the knowledge that every purchase creates sustainable jobs in Africa.
