Ostrich leather is the result of tanning skins taken from African ostriches farmed for their feathers, skin and meat. The leather is distinctive for its pattern of bumps or vacant quill follicles, ranged across a smooth field in varying densities. It requires an intricate, specialized and expensive production process making its aesthetic value costly.
Crafted from genuine African ostrich leather, the WRIST ICONS Ostrich straps made by JPM have a look all of its own, with a distinctive grain featuring natural darker markings due to the feather follicles. The strap's surface has a velvety texture, and the strap is supple with a moderately padded construction. A great, distinctive accessory for most types of watches.
All of our straps made by JPM are completely handmade. So that includes the cutting, punching, stitching, sanding, gluing and distressing processes which result in a superior final product.
The top side is made from an ostrich leather that has a wonderful vintage look to it, the bottom side is an Italian calf leather. The straps are hand stitched with a waxed thread.
