.............✿ Measurements and Attachment ✿.............

This handmade of natural materials leather camera strap attaches with swivel clips and tiny key rings - add your latitude and longitude coordinates and initials to make it your own!

✔STANDARD LENGTH: The leather strap measures:
1" wide
33" long
The clip and ring set measure 2' long on each side for a total strap length of 37"

✔LONG LENGTH: The leather strap measures:
1" wide
38" long
The clip and ring set measure 2' long on each side for a total strap length of 42"

✔EXTRA LONG LENGTH: The leather strap measures:

The clip and ring set measure 2' long on each side for a total strap length of 47"

✔Some style cameras will need both the clip and ring, some will only need the clip. As you can see, my camera has a narrow attachment point so I've threaded the key rings on each side and clipped the strap right on on the rings for a secure and sturdy hold.

........................✿ About Our Straps ✿.......................

★I designed this strap in early 2012. I've chosen clips and rings that are lightweight but strong that won't weigh you down but will allow for quick release and a strong hold. There are shameless copycats of my camera strap designs and construction but while they try to copy our design, no one beats our quality, attention to detail and originality. I hand bevel all edges and slick them so they are smooth on your neck and easy on clothing - something you won't find elsewhere. My camera straps are a labor of love for me, born out of my love of photography, I wanted to create the perfect strap - one that is also a unique, custom work of art for my customers.

....................✿ Why One Inch Wide? ✿.......................

Why do we make straps that are 1 inch wide?
Good question! This is something we've thought about in detail:

We use a 1" wide strap of thick belt leather as it's the most comfortable width for full neck range of motion, any wider and it would limit how far you would be able to lean your head back comfortably as strong leather doesn't crinkle like fabric or thinner leather does.

We use belt leather thickness as it's the heaviest weight available and makes for super strong straps that, with care, can last a lifetime. The straps, while more narrow than fabric straps, have the strength to be used with the heavier cameras. The leather helps to disperse the weight of the camera so your neck doesn't feel the full weight of the gear as much (something we've also been told about our guitar straps) Straps you might see that are wider and still made of leather are usually made with very thin leather that will bend and crinkle behind the neck - I've found these don't last as long, any design that is near the crinkled area is usually destroyed after some use and they don't offer as much support for the camera and add more stress to the neck.

.................✿ Hand Stamping Warning ✿.....................

All of our items are handmade! We produce our items with love, with two human hands :), so lettering will never be machine-straight! We love this about our goods, but you should be aware of that fact before buying. Handmade goods have handmade marks of individuality, and that's the heart of the charm!**

............................✿ Leather Care ✿...........................

**** Super important info to know ****

Leather is a natural skin and is not waterproof. All my pieces are coated in a water-resistant varnish that will keep it safe from the occasional drop here and there, but please do not ever immerse in water. Water will absorb, warping the leather and washing away the stain. Repeated exposure to water eventually rots leather and weakens it to the point it will snap with any pressure.

Just like your leather jacket or shoes, over time you will want to condition the leather and reseal it with one of the many great leather care products on the market.

If you have any questions, please get in touch!
