First of all, we want to voice our opinion when making a watch strap. We always put the quality of the product as well as the most comfort on the customer’s wrist is the most important.
We always stick to those two criteria to make products.
To make a good quality strap, the leather material to make the product is the most important. We always go with genuine leather. The skin is firm and supple to made the products. Additional materials used must also have high quality such as linen thread, paint used to paint edges is high-end from Italy.
For comfort, leather lining is very important. We choose Zermatt leather of HAAS, a specialized leather for lining leather. It is also trusted by Apple watch to choose for their Apple watch strap product. Zermatt leather is very soft, water resistant so it can beat sweat. Its softness and toughness will help the strap to flexibly follow the user’s wrist and provide absolute comfort.
