Upgrade to authentic leather
When upgrading to authentic dark brown leather, you will receive a matching authentic leather strap.
The leather is hand-cut from a full hide – we do not use leather off-cuts. Do note that, because leather is a natural product, there might be some lines or marks on the leather. This adds to the charm of the leather.
The leather is approximately 1.8mm / 0.07″ thick.
At the moment we only offer leather in a dark brown tone. Should this particular tone become unavailable, we will include a piece of leather very close to the tone shown in the photos.
