Michael comes from a long line of leather workers, and he relies on this expertise set to source, tan and cut leather to suit the needs of photographers. Many of us don’t think much about replacing the standard logo-emblazoned strap that comes with our fancy SLRs, but Michael’s make a thoughtful and high quality substitute. Soft and non-itchy baby alpaca wool, supple Argentinean cowhide leather and durable nylon are used to craft each one, and the full size camera straps have been subjected to vigorous testing for strength, wear and max weight load. Which means you can add your heaviest lenses with confidence, and carry point-and-shoots securely by the strap.
