A note from Christine: each leather strap piece is cut by hand.  I have done my best to make sure each strap is straight with a consistent width, but they may not be absolutely perfect.  There may be natural imperfections in the hide, as well as tannery marks on the flesh side. I will only offer straps that I would be confident using on one of my bags.
