TAP & DYE is an American heritage brand created as a homage to the great era of turn of the century manufacturing and craftsmanship that once dominated the Industrial landscape. The focus is simple — Camera straps. Durable. Rugged. High Quality handmade straps for the aspiring street photographer or the seasoned veteran photojournalist. They are compatible with all round lug mount digital SLR, M43, compact mirrorless, rangefinder and film SLR cameras. The Mantra: Quality above all else. You will be purchasing a high quality handmade good made from components sourced from vendors within the US, specifically Indiana, Maine and Pennsylvania. Each strap is made from High Quality, extremely durable Full Grain Cowhide Leather. As no two hides are alike, each strap will be unique.
These straps are cut, punched, dyed and assembled by hand in their New York City studio. These leather straps will be available in antique tan color. Each strap is treated with natural oils to condition and protect it. Over time, this color will patina into a rich russet color.
