Saffiano leather is a full grain calf skin. It has a very distinct crosshatch texture that was designed, developed and patented by Mario Prada in 1913. Prada successfully used this leather to produce an iconic line of signature bags. After the patent expired, the leather was widely adopted and used by luxury brands across the globe.
The leather is hot pressed at 70 degrees to create this beautiful pattern. The process seals the skin and results in a super resilient and easy to clean surface. It's virtually scratch resistant and the ideal leather for straps. Our Saffiano straps will continue to soften over time, but will keep their shape and colour.
The collection consists of six classic colours with a tone on tone stitch that creates a tasteful and elegant strap. Easy to pair with a stainless steel sport watch or a gold dress watch. Sizes start at a lug width of 18mm and go as wide as 22mm in both long and short lengths, including those hard to find odd sizes in 19 and 21mm.
