The 1901 'Leiter' Handmade Leather Camera Strap

from 24.95

for that 'decisive moment'

The ‘Leiter’ is a supple yet strong camera strap designed for the discerning photographer. It is 9mm wide, essentially a narrower version of my ‘Eggleston’ at 11mm. I offer it in simple fixed and customised lengths, both of which can be user fitted with my ‘Steichen’ shoulder pad (see accessories) if required.

I am a photographer based in the UK and I make my straps by hand from the finest quality, full grain Italian leather. For strength and finish I only use vegetable tanned, bovine shoulder leathers. The strap is held together using high-quality metal grommets - these are machined in stainless steel for a great look and feel, and to provide a secure hold on the leather.

THE STRAP'S LENGTH

REGULAR:  £24.95  -  A finished, fixed length of 115cm

CUSTOM LENGTH:  £27.95  -  If you require a customised length, I make the ‘Leiter’ to order in any finished length from 40cm-145cm. Some colours will, at times, only be available up to 115cm, this is made clear in the drop down box on this page.  To order, all you need to do is select 'CUSTOM LENGTH' in the drop down box and then state the finished length you require in the 'Additional Information' message box that is provided on the final checkout page just before you pay. The measurement must be in whole centimetres please. The measurement is taken from the bend / loop in the leather on each end of the strap.

FITTING TO YOUR CAMERA

The ‘Leiter’ is 9mm wide and will fit nearly all digital or classic cameras with an eyelet or slot style strap attachment. The leather end will unhook from the grommets so it can be threaded through the existing strap attachments on the camera, or you can use the split rings that are supplied with the strap.

You may want to consider CAMERA PROTECTION PADS in matching leather; these are available HERE and act as extra protection against possible scratching if you are using the split rings.

I also sell grommet covers in matching leathers and various accessories that fit the ‘Leiter’ including nylon loop fittings that are supplied with a strong, waterproof Nylon loop allowing for attachment to smaller cameras.

If you would like to check the ‘Leiter’ will fit your camera, please feel free to ask.
