Us & our design

About

"Premium leather watch straps
for the modern world."


That's our motto. Strapple originated as an outlet to create a leather Apple Watch strap that we wanted to use ourselves. Our vision is to create straps that can journey the world with you, and develop character and charm from the environment and adventures they experience with you. We believe in ruggedness, simplicity, durability, and timelessness.

Workshop

Quality materials are the core of each of our straps. They are comprised of a polished 316L stainless steel Apple Watch lugs, genuine, minimally treated Italian calfskin leather, and durable linen stitching.

Quality Leather & Buckle

Produced, in our opinion, in one of the finest tanneries in Italy, this artisan leather is raw, yet remarkably refined. We chose this unique style of tanning because it strives to not alter the hide, but instead to bring out the leather’s best qualities possible. Our straps fasten on your wrist with a stunning, finely polished stainless steel buckle. With the remarkable design and a soft curve, the buckle complements the strap's strong, rugged character.

Rugged Connectors

Our straps connect to your Apple Watch with finely polished stainless steel connectors. Carefully designed to ensure an excellent fit that slides in your watch smoothly. When it comes to the steel, we rely on surgery grade, 316L stainless steel, giving it added strength and durability.

Traditional thread and stitching used for Apple Watch straps

Traditional Thread & Stitching

Each strap is lined by a smooth leather backing, a careful stitching pattern, and durable linen thread. The stitching helps maintain lasting integrity and prevents the leather from stretching and morphing despite months of wear. We use a linen thread as found in traditional artisanal saddlery and leather working that provides a timeless finish to the look.
