Alcantara material from Italy is a cutting-edge material that offers unparalleled aesthetic, technical and sensory qualities. While it is most similar to suede and microfiber, it would be inaccurate to categorise Alcantara as any of those material. It is most commonly used in the interior of luxury cars, but its uses has since expanded to everyday goods like wallets, card holders, phone covers, bags etc. It is extremely soft to the touch, and provides a very luxurious feel when made into a strap.
The delivered strap is curved and gray alcantara (similar to suede), which is what I ordered. It arrived fast, which is good. It seems nice, not too stiff but doesn't feel cheap either. Fits a Ming 37.07 as expected.
