Vintage Canvas and leather straps
Vintage Canvas and leather straps – Hi strap lovers, I wanted to share a section of our unique and exclusively designed Canvas straps made from a 1950’s vintage Swiss Army Rucksack Canvas and Leather Rucksack. This basic design was a result of a collaboration between myself with a friend and longtime customer Gabe Alvarez from Sunny Southern California. From the first strap completed, I knew it was going to be an instant classic. Here is a selection of different straps and styles. These straps are among the most technically challenging to build consisting of 4 separate layers of leather and canvas: 1) Top Vintage leather trim layer. 2) Canvas layer. 3) Natural vegetable tanned leather mid-layer, which gives the strap strength and Body and 4) The vintage layer inner lining layer. Of course, the strap is then hand saddle stitching using fine linen thread. The detail work on this strap is unlike anything you will find from any other strap maker – the keeper along can take an hour to build and stitch – a detail that is uniquely Dangerous9strap!!
