It’s been said that among the necessities of life there are two things that everyone will always require: furniture to sit on and lamps to illuminate their surroundings. Thankfully, the prison chic style of wearing trousers that slide below your backside has largely become a thing of the past, so we’d like to add a third essential item – a belt to keep your pants where they belong, around your waist. The people at RR (Miera 12, www.erer.lv) have a whole range of attractive leather goods including belts engraved with the traditional Lielvārdes josta pattern pictured here. You can also buy them in a number of shops including M50, Jaunais Salons A and MūsMāja. Price: €35 - 55.
