Let's chat about this camera strap! πŸ™Œ This beauty is handcrafted by yours truly & @smallbatchsupply ! πŸ‘― & we're so damn proud of it! πŸ’™ Here are a few key points you should know: It's made with lots of love, 13oz denim strap (that's quilted), & lined with a soft strip of leather at the neck- so ya don't turn blue & keeps everything comfy, paired with sturdy leather holds (3 different leather stain options), of course secured by hammered copper rivets & solid brass press studs. πŸ’ͺ Goes up for pre-order tomorrow (Oct. 20th) until Nov. 3rd, & ships out Nov. 17! Up for grabs for $92 . **No pressure, but this batch IS fairly limited, as we only have so much blue selvedge ID, Kuroki-Japanese denim available! & so may not make it the full 2 weeks to pre-order! 😡

In light of the news that Cone Mills is closing down their White Oak mill, I'd like to share my thoughts. πŸ’™ They might differ from a lot of the posts you've seen so far, but know that my experience isn't one of a kind. I'm not alone in sharing this opinion. πŸ’” I am overall saddened, & while this does bring up a lot of important topics we should be discussing (American manufacturing & consumerism) I also can't say I am surprised that they are closing down. πŸ˜” I love Cone denim, I'll start with that. I love the history & heritage behind the mills. & As a small brand, my initial goal was always to produce American made goods, all & everything American sourced. I quickly found out how hard that was & had to find other alternatives, while staying true to the maker ethos. One thing that did want to make sure I used was Cone Mills White Oak selvedge denim. It was a dream of mine, and I really wish I could say that my experience in getting my hands on this fabric was easy, but it was not. As a small brand, the high order minimums made it hard to get a hold of. At one point they offered 100yds in "sample" denim I could purchase. & so of course I did. But it wouldn't be 1st quality, & so it was expected to have several errors per yd. I dealt with it. (Even though as a general standard, even 2nd quality gets you a good yield amount elsewhere. But that's a diff story.) As my brand grew, I tried getting in contact yet again, but still had no luck in finding 1st quality runs with approachable yardage minimums, & Cone wasn't exactly eager to help. & again, I wasn't surprised, as folks in the industry, that are willing to talk at least, had warned me about the struggles it was to buy U.S. Cone. πŸ˜” I've since stuck to buying from jobbers, folks that know the struggle in dealing with the mill, & can get their hands on this woven gold to pass on. I wish I could say that I was surprised when I got the news of the closure. But it's all so bittersweet. πŸ’” Because as a fabric, I love Cone Mills White Oak denim, but I wish they made it a lot easier to get a hold of. I wish they would have supported smaller brands, home grown & eager to produce American made goods. πŸ’™

Currently on my way back home, & right back to work! But, I wanted to give a big shout out & an even bigger thank you to this bae @smallbatchsupply ! 😘❀ Thank you for a proper tour of good ol' L.A., ( finnneeeee I kinda like it now, πŸ˜’πŸ˜Œ) & for letting me tag along everywhere with you while out there! Goes to say that a friendship is solid when you can spend days attached to the hip & not end up killing each other! πŸ˜‚ & now that we've made a baby together (our ridiculously badass camera strap!!!) we're bonded por vida, sorrryyy! ❀ Yomahra & I, have been working for months, (often trying to work in the same shop together , The Bay to L.A. & L.A. to the Bay) pulling together the most beautiful camera strap ever! πŸ”₯Perhaps a little bias, since we did pour our hearts out into this collab, but that only reassures you that we stand 10000000% behind it! πŸ‘― Camera straps launch this Friday! Until then, keep an eye out for teasers!
