The Leather Camera Strap (￥8,925Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.) handmade in Yokohama by cult brand Leather Factory Roberu; a brand that pairs traditional Japanese craft techniques with elegant design. Difficult to find outside of Japan, White Rabbit Express is now offering the purchase of Roberu leather goods internationally.
The Roberu leather camera strap is the kind of strap that can stay on a single camera, and be used year after year, softening and moulding to your body. Although it feels good to use right now, after you’ve worn it in, you’ll have trouble taking it off.
The strap can be adjusted in size—with a beautiful polished metal buckle—by almost 25cm, and if you’re the type who likes to carry around safari-level telephoto lenses the strap can easily handle a weight of up to 5kg. It also widens out around the neck and shoulder area to help distribute weight. Roberu has pre-waxed and dyed the strap, giving it the warm hue of vintage leather, and of course, embossed it with the Roberu brand so you know it’s authentic.
Length: 96cm ~ 120cm from the tip portion of the mounting portion. The length is adjustable in four stages, with 4cm between each stage. The shoulder pad is 50mm at its widest part.
Material: Soft leather, metal fittings
Load: Tested with a hanging weight of 5kg (as a precaution, please refrain from using telephoto equipment with a standing weight of more than 5kg)
About Leather Factory Roberu:
Leather Factory Roberu uses only the highest quality leather which is then worked by hand at a workshop in Yokohama to produce their pouches, straps, belts, wallets, bags and shoes. Their goal is to manufacture in a way which connects people with natural materials; the unevenness of colouring and scratches on the surface of the leather are “proof” that it came from a living thing, they say. You are meant to experience the “process of making” through Roberu products and “increase the texture” of the leather as you use it over month, years, or even decades. And remember that everything which leave the Roberu workshop is handmade and sewn together with durable thread, ensuring that each item will be around long enough to soften and weather. Japan is known for its high-quality leather accesrories, and expert craftsmen. Roberu embodies this reputation.
