Hi strap lovers. We've been featuring so many Ammo straps here recently, I've been told by my wife that I need to make room for more of our beautiful exotic skin straps. With that in mind, I'd like to feature 2 straps I've just completed made from one of my favorite exotics: Ostrich Leg skin. These skin are becoming very difficult to get from the our suppliers, because of an outbreak of bird flue in South African Ostrich farms has required they cull nearly all their flocks and as a result the tanneries have got no new skins to work with. As a result, if you're interested in have an Ostrich Leg skin strap, your should order it from me while my supplies last.
The First strap I would like to feature is made for our great customer Farid from Texas: This Black Ostrich Leg skin strap strap has got a couple of really great features. First, I was made for Farid's PAM361 with our special 'Thick Curved Lug System', which is designed fill the space between the lugs that would exist with a standard straight lug strap and is also curved to follow the gentle curve of the Panerai cushion case. The second feature to note it the very cool olive Cane Toad lining. Think this strap really benefits from a splash of color and it's a real luxury to have a truly unique Exotic skin lining. These Cane Toad skins are thin, soft and extremely durable and make the perfect lining. Plus, I think the color looks great. The strap also features thin padding at the lugs as well as super fine hand saddle stitching using Ecur 4 ply waxed Irish linen thread
The second strap is for my very good customer from the UK. It's make with one of my very favorite Ostrich Leg skin colors: Desert Tan. This is just a super rich color and with tons of character. I think it's the best color for showing off all the lovely details inherent in Ostrich leg sking. This strap also features our exclusive SuperExotica upgrade with beautiful Classic tan Eel lining which again is super strong, thin and very soft to the touch and has be finely hand saddle stitched using Buterscotch 4 ply waxed Irish linen. I think it's just a stunning combo. Also thickly padded, this strap is sure to be an eye catcher.
These straps really show what I love about Ostrich Leg skin - wonderful exotic skin patterning, charater and excellent durability, which I find every bit the equal of Alligator and why I continue to promote these beautiful skins for watch straps.
