    PU/Faux/Synthetic/Leatherette - Where can I find good (tried and trusted) quality straps?

    Hi All!

    Being a Vegan, I don't want to wear genuine leather straps. However, I just love the look of it. I know I can get few straps from ebay or .........s but I would like to know if there is a known good brand out there that is durable and looks good.

    Thanks!

    Strappedfortime.com used to carry vegan straps, not sure if they still do, but might look just in case.

    I'm with you OP in that I've decided to not wear leather straps for the same reason, I've just been wearing natos and rubber straps but I'd love to see some good looking faux leather straps.

    Thank you Nokie! I couldn't find any on their website. So, I sent them an email. Hopefully they redirect me to some reliable source.

    Cheers! Nice to find a vegan in a niche forum like this. I recently order a SKONE watch for abt 8$ from China after scouring the website for PU straps. Strap looks decent and there are few other options but all of them are under 20$ and also the seller description is not reliable on Chinese sites. I usually cross-check the same model description on 1-2 websites and then buy them. I am planning to swap straps and see if they look any decent.

    I've had a look at the website for Watch Band Centre, who are a very well known strap seller from Germany. It looks like they have a fantastic selection of faux leather straps, and in particular you might want to check out the Morellalato Green collection of synthetic straps. These look really nice, I think I'm going to order a couple.

    It says of these straps -
    Watch straps from the Green Collection are made of synthetic materials of highest quality and according to strict ecological guidelines. The material used equates almost genuine leather and is also comparable in matter of life period and durability.

    Excellent find buddy! I've never heard about their them earlier but their offerings look great and their claim about the durability is very tempting too will soon order one or two.
