Custom made watch straps needed

All, I am making a series of watches and I need to find a company or
a leather artist who can make custom make leather straps for them.
I am trying to break as many rules as possible in the creation of
these pieces so obviously regular straps will not do or even work.
Anyone have any idea where, who I might be able to contact about
this? I would prefer to use a small company or individual rather
than go through a large company but the most important thing is that
these are going to be pretty funky watches so I need someone who can
match my vision and quality without going all corporate on me!


Hi Larry,

I have an idea for you! There is a business, here in Charlotte,
called The Leather Factory. They seem to know a lot of top-notch
leather artisans in the Carolinas, and always go out of their way to
be helpful. Of course, a lot of saddle makers and western gear, but
possibly some more artistic practitioners, as well. Could be worth
an inquiry to see if they can provide a referral:

The Leather Factory, 2526 S. Tryon, Charlotte, NC - 704-335-1628.

All the best,
