The "Kensington" Vegetable Tanned Leather Watch Strap
This watch strap is named after one of the picturesque foothill suburbs of Adelaide, where I grew up - and still live today, enjoying life creating these beautifully handcrafted watch straps.
These straps are made from high quality cow vegetable tanned leather - a natural leather that is durable and long lasting, developing a desirable patina as worn. I make these straps to order using natural and environmentally friendly products, they are hand stitched and the edges are beautifully finished with gum tragacanth and beeswax. The Kensington watch straps are padded with a strip of leather for added comfort and support and hand saddle stitched. They can either be a straight style or tapered and are finished off with high quality stainless steel buckles.
