1.25″ Wide Steamer Trunk Strap Sets


We call these our Wide Strap Sets. Lines on the table are square feet. Made from medium brown, dark brown, or black USA cattlehide, these straps are one and a quarter-inch wide and about a tenth of an inch thick (6 oz leather). Antique brass finish center-bar buckle. These are sold in sets, and each set includes four parts: Two long straps and two shorter straps. The longer straps have holes in them for buckling; the shorter straps have the buckles stitched onto them (not riveted – good heavens). The strap ends are 40″ long. The buckles ends are 20 inches long. Choose medium brown, dark brown, or black – they’re all priced the same.  We make these to imitate some of the old original straps we’ve found on trunks over the years, and, by gosh, they seem to look pretty good.  These strap sets are made using 4 ounce leather; it’s 1/16″ thick which is not like a belt nor a harness; it’s lighter than that.  We use this leather because it goes around the edges of the trunk without making a fuss, and it’s much easier to buckle/unbuckle than would be that heavier leather.  1.25″ Wide Strap Set Part Number Strap125 $60 per set Includes shipping to any USA location.

Here’s some helpful information about where to place/how to arrange these on your trunk.
