The earliest archaeological evidence of belt hooks date to the 7th century BC, in East Asia. Belt hooks were made with bronze, iron, gold, and jade. Texts from Warring States period China claim that the belt hook originates from Central Asian nomads, although belt hooks have been found in China predating the Warring States. Belt hooks have also been found in Celtic archaeological sites.
