*NEW* Wooden Camera Strap [Minimo] [cs-mi2]
Our Selling Price: 2,500円 (JPY)
Packed Weight: 60g
The "Minimo" was born from our desire to develop a strap that is not just a "convenient tool" but something that we not only use every day, but also becomes an "important partner" that we use with deep affection and feel like we want to touch.
Since being first produced in 2011, about 35,000 "Minimo" have been shipped. To further continue the highest quality product that we can, we here at Ulysses have decided to move our production base from Indonesia to Japan. Plus—we have now done a comprehensive review of everything "minimo" from shape, to design and of course to production.
Now, you can choose your own "minimo" from three types of wood: Sugar Maple, Sapele and Walnut. And since there are 12 different colors of strings, you can find your own "Minimo" from a set of 36 different combinations.
Commonly known as the‘Sapele’, the entandrophragma cylindricum is a large tree native to tropical Africa. It is found in countries like the Congo, Uganda, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria. The tree grows to a height of between 40 to 60 m. There is beautiful transparent interlocked grain on the surface of the wood-- the face of the wood also changes with the reflection of light.
It comes as no surprise that the Sugar maple gets its name from the tasty sap that gives us maple syrup which is a must have when we pancakes are on the menu! This tree’s leaf is the national symbol of Canada. The wood, which is also called hard maple, is dense and glossy, durable and stands up against majority of impact and friction.
Walnut's favorable working characteristic is its rich color making it one of the world’s most valued lumbers along with mahogany and teak. Walnut trees grow as high as 30 to 40 m and it’s a very straight wood. Since its strong and easy to work with because its grain is straight and regular, it has been used for luxury furniture and other wooden crafts for a very long time.
