    Looking for similar strap...

    Hi Guys,

    I was wondering if anyone could suggest a strap similar to this one. Mainly the color and unfinished look. This is from Heuerville, which I hear is excellent, but $200 is a lot to spend on a strip of leather, sorry.

    Try Patrick at Clover Straps, pretty sure he can make you something nice like that for a lot less than $200.

    That looks great! How's the quality? The price is certainly right.

    Its nice, soft 2 layer construction. The 2 layers kind of slip but they're glued together, I'm not sure how that works, hopefully it will stay together. It certainly gets the look without the cost. I wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

    I just got a Heureville a month ago, and it converted to $154 CAD, including shipping. That's about in the middle of the price band for a high quality, hand made, custom strap. I've paid as low as around $100 up to close to $300 for custom straps in the past. If a strap is significantly cheaper than this, then you can be certain it's coming from somewhere like China, or in the case of the one mentioned above, Vietnam, and the materials being used may be questionable.

    Etsy is a great place to find unique hand made straps like this.

    Those are some very nice looking straps, and very reasonable prices. I already ordered the Black Forest one suggested above, but I have your site in my Bookmarks now and will certainly visit you in the future. Thanks!
