Buffalo is valued for its strength and durability. Our Buffalo Suede Nubuck straps are made from the top grain of the hide, which is the most sought after. It is then lightly sanded to create a beautiful nap that can be seen quite clearly on our Mocha and Smoke Grey straps. The Caramel strap is from the same part of the hide, but has been reversed to show its rough surface, creating an incredibly striking design. Don't confuse these straps with inferior suede which is created from the lower levels of the hide once the hide has been split, which does create a beautiful strap but is nowhere near the quality and durability of Buffalo suede nubuck. The length of each half of the strap is 11.5cms and 7.5cms without the buckle.
