It's been a while since I've updated my blog so here goes......
Our new braid straps have been a great success since their introduction earlier in the year.
I have to admit I was undecided in the beginning but I thought about it for a few weeks and finally took the plunge. 'Nothing ventured, and all that....'  It was a slow start but gradually the orders started to trickle in, then suddenly it went mad and I was struggling to keep up.
My ongoing hospital and GP appointments were getting in the way of my orders. Anyone who is in a similar situation will know what I mean when an appointment which should only
take half an hour ends up taking half a day! 
I like to fulfil orders quickly and get them despatched asap.
I'm very impatient by nature and hate to be kept waiting for
something that I've ordered so I know how customers feel
when they're waiting for items to be delivered. For those of
you have experienced delays, I apologise, but I do my utmost
to get them out quickly. 
Before I go,can I ask anyone who has purchased any of our
straps if you can send a pic of your camera/strap combo to add to our FB page. Please send to or via FB.
Thank you in advance for your time.

NEW Braided polyester shoulder straps.

We have just introduced our new shoulder straps in braided, soft feel polyester.  They will be available in four colours, Sun Yellow, Sky Blue, Fire Red and Black with a choice of 20 trim colours. The split rings are attached with leather which is glued and stitched through the cord prior to binding.

  rings to the polyester cord.

  The leather ring retainers are shaped to fit neatly around          
  the cord end and glued in place.


  The next stage is to saddle stitch the retainers to the cord
  using a strong waxed thread.

  Once the leather ends are secured we proceed to the

  lengths to suit you.
