Grey Babele ‘Linen’ Leather Strap

Our Babele is a vegetable-tanned leather from Conceria Tempesti in Italy.

Tannery: Conceria Tempesti, Italy
Temper: Medium Firm
Surface: Linen-like
Patina: Light to medium
Water Resistance: None. To ensure longevity, avoid moisture or soaking our straps in water.

As our straps are handcrafted with natural leather, each strap will be unique and may have slight variations to the product photo.

This leather has a linen-like finish, making it perfect as a casual watch strap. It is coated with a light layer of wax and the leather is etched to create a linen-like surface. The leather surface varies from smooth and grained, with some areas of the hide containing a light pebbled grain underneath the linen-look. As grey babele is a vegetable-tanned leather, it will age with a warm tone to the leather.

All of our watch straps are entirely handmade one by one, utilising traditional leather crafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure that your strap lasts you a lifetime. All of our straps are lined with Zermatt leather, a hypoallergenic and water-resistant french calf leather.

For an approximate wrist size guide:
1. Extra small 95mm/65mm will fit a 5.0-5.5 inch wrist
2. Small sized 105mm/70mm will fit a 6.0-6.5 inch wrist
3. Standard size 115mm/75mm will fit a 6.5-7.5 inch wrist
4. Large size 125mm/80mm will fit a 7.5-8.0 inch wrist

A big fan

I've tried straps from different brands in the past. Now, for leather straps, I will only buy from Artisan Straps. Brilliant.

Beautiful Strap - Perfect for Winter Months

My 10th strap from Artisan Straps. From opening the package, it is apparent that the strap is well crafted. The hand-stitching is very straight and the tension is even, and the edge painting is very smooth without a clear line.

The strap is gorgeous and pairs perfectly with my baby Blizzard. I asked Jayson to customise the thickness of the strap to match the lugs and he did a perfect job. The Zermatt Leather used to line the bottom of the strap is also incredibly soft and water resistant and I've been able to wear this strap all year round. I've tried other leather straps from other Australian brands such as Strapify and Sydney Strap Co but they feel like they're mass produced in Asia.

Definitely worth checking out if you are after a strap.
