TAP and DYE are one of the most revered modern camera strap makers. And they’re more or less made by one guy.
When you visit the workspace of TAP and DYE, you see a well manicured, clean, and well organized workspace that outputs any number of camera straps a day. In many ways, it looks like those picturesque photos of random things presented neatly. There are tools on a green desk for creating the straps, other tools on a wall, leather of various types in one corner, vintage machines that simply work on any given side, and a number of gorgeous vintage cameras that are used for product photography. The space isn’t large; in fact it’s probably around 1/3rd of the size of my two bedroom apartment in Brooklyn.
