Quality Leather Bands in Colors

Recommended Posts

Hi very quick simple question about where to buy leather bands in different colors.

I have purchased several from cousins and, while some are ok, some are very stiff and brittle, and they crack like plastic or disintegrate, even when they are not used.  For example, the band is sitting untouched in the bag for a year, then I take one out to put onto a watch and it essentially crumbles in my hands. All of the bands of that type are basically unusable (I bought about 8). 

The picture and descriptions don't help much.

Price is also a part of this question. At large electronics stores that have a watch section, of course they have good straps, but I would rather not drop $20-30 on each strap when I am buying 10+.

I'm strap maker from Viet Nam.

If you are looking good quality straps. you could visit my facebook or instagram page to see detail about straps.    @chulyquang.leatherworks

In the range price i recommend you should choose epsom leather for strap.  it is really durable in different conditions weather.

That is a fair question. Short answer- <$15.

Quite honestly, it might have something to do with my understanding of the production line, but I assume that the parts places should have better prices than the retail stores.

The $7 metal bracelets from these places seem to be the same look and quality that sell in stores for $20 or $30, but the $20 leather straps are about the same as the $20 ones in stores.

It is kind of hit or miss. Some of their $7-10 straps are fine, but some are just crumbly plastic, and I don't know until it gets to me.

If there is a short list of reviewed straps someplace, that would be great.
