Exploring Materials: New Watch Straps

posted by Matt Pierce on February 20, 2014

Lately I've been working with some new leathers from SB Foot Tannery from Red Wing, Minnesota. They have a long history in fine leathers since 1905, but also more recently known for being a part of the Red Wing family. We're proud to be working with them and here's our first release using their leather. The surface feel and weight is perfect for watch straps and our camera wrist strap. The colors are more diverse, the strength is amazing and finish is wonderfully durable.

Most of you know how I love watches, and the obsession has grown since making my first watch strap on the blog. Now, for those of you that liked the tones and texture on those early straps, this new leather has a great resemblance. Colors are a natural khaki, saddle tan, olive brown and black. Pictured on the watch is the olive brown, which looks amazing on military styled watches like this Maratac.

Also used on the camera wrist strap, this new leather looks great on your favorite vintage lug-mount shooter. Perfect for a little extra grip on a small camera. The one pictured is saddle tan on an old Olympus Trip.
