Natural Vegetable-tanned Leather Nato Strap (16, 18, 20, 22 & 24mm Wide)
You are looking at the remake of the classic nylon NATO strap in high-quality leather. The strap is constructed of natural vegetable-tanned cow leather and polished stainless steel hardware. The keepers have enough clearance for tucking back the strap end. We pay attention to every detail, the edges of the strap are beveled and hand-burnished to achieve a smooth finish. Stitching on the strap is all done by hand and double stitched for durability.
White-colored thread as in the photos would be used unless stated. Tan and other thread colors are also available, please contact me for availability.

About the leather:
Made from wonderfully tanned vegetable tanned cow leather. Vegetable tanning is a traditional way of tanning using tannic acids naturally found from plant species. The natural appearance before painted, has a slightly brownish tinge over a beige color, with a natural, woody, and earthy smell. Due to the nature of the tannins, a unique patina will develop and "carmelize" over time.

Veg-tanned leather is beautiful and becomes even better over time as it develops a patina. The strap that Colin made for me demonstrates his craftsmanship and skill. It is perfectly made and fits my watch really well. I am very happy that I bought this.
Decent quality, hopefully it lasts long enough and see some nice patina form
