Why Nero Straps?

Nero Straps are handmade from the finest natural vegetable tanned cowhide produced right here in Spain.

Each strap is hand sewn and indivually dyed. I do not use mass-produced chrome tanned or pre-dyed hides. Vegetable tanned leathers are much stiffer than those using chrome tanning and require a break in period. However, it is higher quality, better wearing, and develops greater character over time.

95% of all leather is chrome tanned. While leather produced using chromium sulfate is very supple, less expensive, and quicker to produce, it does not wear as sturdy and generally has flatter and less interesting color variation.

I use only professional oil dyes which have greater staining power and color-fastness than less expensive acrylic dyes. In addition, I mix and dilute dyes to create an infinite variety of colors and textures. To seal, protect, and begin the breaking in process, I hand massage all straps by hand with neatsfoot oil and wax from our own beehives.

How to order

Most of our straps are made to order. For the most complete listing of the straps styles we offer, please visit https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/    If you do not see what you are looking for feel free to send me pictures to illustrate what you need and I will let you know if we can do it.  

Please use links or pictures to reference straps from our Flickr account - I don´t remember the names of all the files. :)

To place an order, please provide me with your strap lengths or wrist size, lug width, whether you would like the strap straight or tapered.

I have a wide range of buckle choices from Pre-V in SS and PVD to distressed GPF-style sewn-in buckles, in addition to Rolex and IWC and sterile buckles for narrower straps. What I don't have can be sourced or I can direct you to reputable online sellers.

Guarantee

Finally, I am dedicated to my customers' full satisfaction. If for ANY reason at ANY time, you are not 100% satisfied with your strap, you may return it for replacement or a full refund. No questions, no hassles. It is my goal to offer a quality product at a reasonable price and with the best after sales attention.

All listed prices include international shipping with tracking by regular post and PayPal fees. I guarantee delivery or I will resend your strap.

I hand massage all straps by hand with paste mixed with neatsfoot oil and wax from my own beehives.

 

 

Don't undersell it John. That's organic beeswax, and from your file (I spy on other strap makers) I hear the massaging is only done while listening to Enya chants and wearing leather regalia.

 

Congrats mate, good luck. :D

Leather regalia being my eye patch. Otherwise, I am naked when I do the massaging of the straps.

Actually, "naked" isn't quite accurate - I do use a food preparation hair net on my ball sack. Don't like pubes in the wax.
