We had an exciting collaboration with FUJIFILM where we designed and made camera hand-straps especially for their X-Series Mirrorless collection. This was a really fun project for us as we have always use FUJIFILM cameras for our photography on our website, Instagram and Facebook.
We wanted to make a wrist-strap for their mirrorless range to make it more handy and easy to get in and out of the camera bag. Shoulder straps sometimes get in the way when you quickly have to take the camera out of the bag to click that magical moment.
Designing this camera strap was quite interesting, we wanted to include little details like the 'X' stitching paying homage to their X-Series collection. We used premium vegetable tanned leather which is handstitched and handpainted to give a classic and artisanal look when used with the FUJIFILM cameras which themselves have quite a vintage style.
