Our Minerva Box (Italian Calf) is a vegetable-tanned leather from Badalassi Carlo in Tuscany, Italy.
Tannery: Badalassi Carlo, Italy Temper: Soft Firm Surface: Lightly tumbled grain Patina: High Water Resistance: Low. 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.
Minerva Box is a soft and supple leather which has a light pebbled grain from being tumbled. As it is vegetable-tanned, it will patina and darken with wear, adding more character 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.
