Hello forum members,

My name is Costas, I'm from Patras, Greece and I'm making various leather goods but mainly handmade leather watch straps, strap cases and watch cases.

I'm a big watch fun and that's why I started making straps myself. It's my hobby and I have an online shop on Etsy to sell some straps for my expenses.

I'm using best quality vegetable tanned full grain cowhide leather from selected tanneries in UK, France and Germany. Some of the straps are not dyed at all, only sun tanned to a beautiful light brown (tan) color.

Everything is handstitched with the best linen threads from Ireland, France and UK (Barbour, SoMac etc). Some straps are double stitched with 2 threads together.

All watch straps are coming with a free handmade molded strap case. It's important for me when the customer opens the package to see something beatiful instead of a plastic box.

You can reach me anytime at: [email protected]
I have a personal blog: http://centaurstraps.blogspot.com
a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/centaur.straps

and an online shop on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CentaurStraps

Some pics of my work. More to come! Hope you'll enjoy them!

Thanks,
Costas

Great looking straps!
I also like that case they come in..looks like it can be used for carrying a flashlight or knife,..so double purpose.
Looking forward to seeing more.
Enjoy the forum.

Thank you! The strap cases are also molded which gives them great durability and strength for any use. For my knives I'm doing leather sheaths like the one below, they keep the knife in place and it fits perfectly (also molded).

Great to see a new talented vendor online with the boys. Welcome to WF's, and looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Love those boxes. You should be selling these on your website.
