    Raw leather straps

    Do people make or wear raw leather straps, so they just patina over time?

    Is that a thing? I feel like it should be a thing.

    I also feel like it should be a thing. But I don't know if it is.

    Not sure what you mean by "raw" and "patina" in terms of leather. Photos?

    Raw meaning a handmade strap that is stitched and complete, but no leather dye or finish is used.

    Patina meaning the natural coloring of the leather over time by hand washing, oils from your hands, etc.

    You don't literally mean "raw" as in rawhide, you know, the stuff dog toys are made from? If you mean "raw" as in merely vat dyed, vegetable tanned and top or other grains? Yes, lots of them are available.

    All the best.

    Re: Raw leather straps

    Check Etsy for simple, natural, handmade straps sold by a lot of different makers. I got a strap on order from an Etsy seller. He left the sides somewhat unfinished which i like. I dont care for all that rubberized sealant stuff some makers use. I also dont prefer a ton of coatings either.
