The Companion Leather Camera Strap - Tan
The Companion is your hard-wearing leather camera strap designed to fit almost all cameras with standard ring attachment. Made using 3.5mm vegetable tanned leather, these straps will soften with use and develop their own unique patina. It's also fitted with raw brass rivets that will age alongside the natural leather.
Measures 11mm wide and 110cm in length.
Also available in Black and Natural.
Vegetable tanned leather is a great product which uses a more natural process than chrome tanned leather. It creates a long lasting product that allows each item to age and develop its own unique patina. To get the best out of your vegetable tanned leather, it is important to treat it right.
- Each of our leather products is shipped out with our natural leather balm. A thin coating should be applied and rubbed in before use.
- The protective leather balm will protect and darken the leather. We recommend reapplying every few months.
- Sun will cause pigments in the leather to fade in the beginning but the natural leather will darken and develop its own colour with use.
- If you wish to keep the brass hardware shiny, this can be done with normal metal polish.
For every market bag purchase $3 will be donated to Lihle through Just Peoples.
Lihle, a local woman from the tribal village of Kwa Shange in South Africa, has a big heart and a big vision. In Lihle’s village, there are increasing numbers of orphaned and vulnerable children due to a high prevalence of HIV/Aids. At the same time, many children die before the age of 2 so there is an urgent need for improved maternal healthcare. In 2006 Lihle set up education and maternity health programmes to address these two key issues her community faces and to break the cycle of poverty.
