Review | Handcrafted Leather Camera Strap

Today I'm delighted to share a beautiful product with you all, sponsored by Magpie Accessories on Etsy.

Kathryn was a delight to work with, and though her shop is based in the UK, the shipping was prompt and streamlined.
The camera strap itself is a dream. I selected the Marbled Chocolate Brown strap, which is a lovely rich leather in a classic color.  The quick-release sam brown-style button closure makes changing straps a breeze, and the top stitching is the perfect finish.

The leather itself was a little more thin that I was expecting, and does stretch the tiniest bit if put to strenuous use for long periods of time.  However, I use it as a sort of 'dress suit' for my camera, using it at weddings and events where my everyday bright pink strap might look a little loud.  This classic leather camera strap can go anywhere with lashings of style, bringing your ensemble to a whole new level.

Be sure to check out her shop, and with Christmas coming up, you may want to add her to your favorites for yourself or another special photographer in mind!

  1. Aha! What a fine new "suit" for the indispensable Algy! And bravo to Kathryn for using chemical-free components in an otherwise fumigated craft world. :-P

    God bless,

  2. Lovely leather accessories! Maggie has some very unique and practical items in her shop. This camera strap that you have on display is quite chic and that great little bag to store it in is a plus!
