Waxed Canvas Mil-Strap... What more do you need to know? RIOS1931 took the classic, MoD design, and recreated it with one of our absolute favorite materials. Waxed canvas has an unbeatable, rugged style to it that only gets better with age. The canvas chose for these straps is nice and heavy, with a noticeable weave pattern, adding to its tough look. To make the strap both more comfortable and far more durable, they are also lined with black veg-tan leather and feature matching edge paint.
Founded in 1931 by watchmaker Riemer Oswald, RIOS1931 is a German-based brand that is independent and family owned. With a wide variety of straps in a range of materials, what sets them apart is a focus on handcraft and traditional techniques. Their straps employ processes with over 100 steps for exceptional detailing and durability. Yet, despite the labor intensive method in which they are made, RIOS1931 straps are surprisingly affordable.
