We made this new type of watch strap with vintage and military-issued watches in mind. Our goal was to make a strap with a true vintage look, and not just that. Also, a true vintage feeling to it.
To make that happen we experimented with a cotton blend. We do have cotton blend in some of our other straps, but this time we wanted to reduce the glossy surface and the cotton gave that perfect matte strap that we were looking for. However, we had to blend in some nylon to be able to heat seal the holes and edges, otherwise, it would start fraying up when you use it.
