The quintessential leather strap. Barenia leather from Haas tannery in France is widely used by Hermes, and Hermes doesn't just choose any leather to use. It only uses the best. This is the same Barenia that Apple uses for its Apple Watch strap, and Hermes for its Birkin bag.
Barenia leather is soft and supple, with just the right firmness. It has a very smooth surface, with just a tiny bit of gloss. Closer inspection can reveal the beautiful grain on this leather. It has moderate scratch resistance which means you don't need to baby the strap. Small scratches can be buffed out with just some slight rubbing. This also means that Barenia is able to develop a beautiful patina that results in a slight darkening of the leather with use.
Excerpt from Strap Guide by Sam: "This is my first Barenia strap. It’s a very soft calfskin, that feels surprisingly durable given how supple it is. I chose “Cobalt” because I dig the fun light blue shade, as well as the matching stitching. The result is a sleek, modern, and summer-ready strap, that works year-round in beautiful Southern California."
nice company to buy from and the bracelet keeps a very nice leather quality.
The leather is soft, yet strong. The sheen is subtle but not hard to hunt for. The color is uniform and the surface is smooth. This is by far, the best material for a strap you could get. I wish Delugs made it in 19mm or 21mm odd sizes and also in curved lugs, but for now, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Good quality and color pops!
Super soft leather and striking color. Strongly recommend Delugs
