I love what I do. One of the small things is the soft calfskin leather strps for Leica M and Leica Q cameras that allow you to "Always Wear a Camera" and be ready, comfortable and in style.


Working through a crisis

One of the things we did when the crisis started, was to send our artisans funds to buy stock up of leater and materials. Many of the artisans that make the greatest brands are small families who have been doing this beautiful work for generations. Often they live above the workshop, or next to. By enabling them to work during the lockdown, we have been able to fill up our stocks and make their economy running.

Matteo Perin and the artisans have been making prototypes of new Leica SL2 bags, travel bags and more, while the artisans have been producing camera straps, The Von Camera Bag and other bags in new colors.


Everything is in stock for your pleasure

I find that the more simple a design is, the harder it is to get it designed and made as I envision. When you try my camera strap, you will feel the love that went into making what is simply a leather strap. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. I hope you will enjoy the camera strap.
