The Birmingham Series Watch Strap was inspired by a vintage leather suitcase I saw during my trip to Birmingham, the UK. It is a brown leather suitcase made by oil wax leather and has developed unique charcoal brown patina around the edge of the suitcase.I was immediately caught by the suitcase and made me decided to create a watch strap that can develop the same kind of patina one day.
Thanks to the help of our local leather craftsman, we managed to source the type of leather used in creating the suitcase from Italy. The leather has been through oil and wax treatment giving it a special and unique shade of depth. As you wear the watch strap, the Oil wax leather can develop a unique patina. The colour will get deeper as you use it to create your unique watch strap carrying your story.
We have added soft leather lining underneath the strap to up the level of comfort as you wear the watch strap. A hand sticking has also been added from tip to end of the strap to increase the durability of the watch strap so you will be able to witness the patina it develops over the years!
We think a leather product is meant to be a life time and we mean it by creating all of our product with all our effort techniques.
