Part of our new American Made collection, this strap is hand crafted in-house at our South Florida facility. This strap is made with calfskin leather that is vegetable tanned and analine-dyed.
While not supplied by our go-to tannery (Horween), this leather is very high quality. Similar to our kangaroo leather, the English Kip has a great balance of comfort and strength, which allows it to be thin without being flimsy. This vegetable tanned leather will darken and patina nicely with age. It starts off as a nice tan color -- not too light, not too dark.
Each strap is made by hand, including hand stitching using heavy gauge black thread. This model is constructed in a regular NATO style. The underside of this strap is the suede backside of the leather hide (unfinished and unlined). It features stainless steel hardware in brushed or black PVD.
