Our Waxy is a vegetable-tanned cowhide leather from Badalassi Carlo in Tuscany, Italy. As the name suggests, waxy leather is a cowhide leather that has a high wax content causing areas of the strap to appear darker and show creases in the wax. There is a strong pull-up effect and over time, will develop patina like any regular vegetable-tanned leather.

The Gold Standard for Leather Watch Straps

All of our watch straps are entirely handmade, utilising traditional leather crafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure your straps are durable and refined. All of our straps are lined with Zermatt leather, a hypoallergenic and water-resistant french calf leather. As all our leathers are full-grain leathers, the natural characteristics of the leather will show and may vary across straps.

The quality of the straps is very high as is the grade of leather being used. The finish is superb with excellent stitching and finishing of the band.
Customer service is exceptional, as an items ordered was quickly identified as being out of stock, with another model being offered at no additional cost.
I do plan on purchasing again, they have earned my business
