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

Shell Cordovan is famous for its gorgeous shine and unique crease-resisting property due to the density of the leather. It requires very little maintenance and overtime, develops a beautiful patina. Shell Cordovan begins as a high-shine leather and overtime becomes more dull with wear. This shine can be replenished through the application of leather conditioner and brushing vigorously.

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.
