Detroit Strap Company makes custom watch straps out of unique and often iconic materials. The company was inspired to create the straps by the thriving watch industry in Detroit.
Some of their raw materials include Horween leather, vintage motorcycle jackets, baseball gloves and footballs. The up-cycled straps retain the texture of their source material and frequently feature the original embossed lettering.
Detroit Strap is currently working together with local watch manufacturer Canvas Watch Company to create one of a kind time pieces.
The straps cost between $125-$135 if they are made out of vintage sports memorabilia, and $60 if they are made of heavy-weight Horween leather. They also offer hand crafted leather key chains for $20.
Detroit Straps are available for purchase on their website, or at Darakjian Jeweler in Birmingham.
