Our Epsom French Calf is an embossed grain, chrome-tanned leather from the Tannery Haas and Tannery Du Puy, near the river Rhine and in the alpine regions of France.

Tannery: Haas, France
Temper: Medium 
Surface: Embossed grain
Patina: None
Water Resistance: High. 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.

Epsom calf leather is a classic, with excellent resistance against scratches and water. It is used for many leather products by high end brands such as Hermes and it is incredibly water and scratch-resistant and easy to clean. Epsom's grained is more pronounced due to it being embossed, making it great for dressing down your watch for a casual appearance.

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

Excellent leather quality, terrible clasp

The quality of the leather strap is excellent, rivalling the quality of much higher priced pieces. I would highly recommend these straps for anyone wanting a great quality leather band.

The only issue I have is the folding clasp add on is possibly one of the worst folding clasps I have used. The clasp is a butterfly, but you can't clip down the bottom side until the top side is clipped in above it, unless you press both buttons to lock it in, which leaves the experience very awkward. Having a different clipping system would significantly improve the overall experience.

Beautiful strap

Having purchased an exotic previously I had high expectations for this more conservative leather. The strap surpassed my expectations. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is very high and equivalent to straps from other custom makers that cost 100-200% more.

Great quality and service

Best companion for my Speedy

This is the second strap that I bought from Artisan Straps and I am really happy again. The strap feels great, looks amazing and most importantly fits perfectly on the watch and the pin-buckle I have. I am not looking elsewhere when I need a custom made strap.
Thanks Artisan Straps Team,
