Leather Strap [ 70% GRANDE ] [cs-70gd]
Our Selling Price: 10,200円 (JPY)
Packed Weight: 200g
As compact single lens-reflex cameras which are slightly smaller than conventional single-lens reflex cameras have got more and more popularity, we have heard from our customers say “the CLASSICO is too slender for their cameras but the CLASSICO GRANDE is too broad. In response to the voice, we have made this model with 30mm wide neck holder as between.
Today it is general that a camera strap uses synthetic fiber and a nylon tape, but the leather strap wasn't unusual until only about 30 years from now. It wasn't dressing-up but for the practical use.
Since the leather is used for all the parts of the strap, it has integrated appearance and you can enjoy the texture.
The 70% GRANDE is for all the camera fans who have deep affection to your tool and want to keep it for a long period of time.
[ The Streamline Form Succeeded by CLASSICO GRANDE ]
The widest part of the strap is 30 mm. It is neither too broad nor too slim. It has the perfect fit to you neck and distributes the weight evenly-- whether around your neck or your shoulder.
[ Two Different kinds of leather are Used ]
Two different kinds of leather are used for the strap: for the surface, the highest-grade vegetable-tanned Italian Pueblo leather is employed. Vegetable-tanned Minerva leather—of course from the same tannery, is used for the back of the strap.
The combination of the delicate damage processed Pueblo leather and Minerva leather with its crimped surface makes the strap strong yet flexible.
Furthermore, the side of the strap (coba), has been further enhanced by detailed polishing—all hand done by the amazing craftsman which understandably takes a considerable amount of time.
The more you use it, the more you can enjoy the vintage effect as the leather ages.
[ Our First Priority is Given to Protect the Camera ]
Since no metal is used for this strap, your important camera will not be damaged even if the strap is wound tightly.
[ Attach to Any Cameras ]
You can use this strap directly to cameras equipped with 10 mm wide slit eyelet such as camera series from Canon and to the cameras with the triangular rings installed to the cameras from the shipment.
By using attached double rings, you can use the strap for cameras from Nikon, Olympus, PENTAX, SONY, Leica, and so on…basically any camera which has the round eyelets to connect a strap.
Please don’t open the ring too wide.

The material, vegetable-tanned leather is processed by an old method using natural ingredients that differ slightly in shade of the color by its coloring rods.
[ Two Different Lengths ]
Depending on how you want to use it and what feels most comfortable, you can choose from two lengths; M (77~110 cm) and the L (83~125 cm). You can adjust the length to a certain degree.
We recommend size M if you want to have slung around your neck no matter how tall you are.
[ The Optimal Length ]
To decide optimal length, we recommend using a tape measure and calculate the length when slung—choose the length that feels most comfortable. For taking photos in the winter season, wear your winter clothes and measure the length to be even more precise.
