Finding the right, handsome camera strap can be just as hard as picking the right camera but thankfully the world has no shortage of options. Today we’re going to take a look at a couple of exotic leather straps by way of Japan at Doppietta-Tokyo.
First up is a camera strap is made of horse leather from the famous American cordovan tanner Horween—who may be best known for being the exclusive supplier of leather for NFL footballs as well as the NBA’s basketballs. If Horween’s leather can be sent hurdling across 100 yards you can bet these straps are durable enough for lugging around your precious camera.
What’s more, Horween strap comes with a gorgeous belt hole adjustment system that anyone tired of the standard straps will appreciate. The strap itself measures 105cm to 135cm and reaches a maximum width of 45 mm at its fattest segment.
Alternatively, photographers looking for a bit more style and rivets should check out Doppietta-Tokyo’s Etrusco leather strap. The hide these straps are made of come from a belt and horse riding gear maker in Italy named Conceria Walpier. The strap comes with a 40mm wide shoulder pad and measures 120 cm long that can be extended up to an additional 6 cm long.
