ABOUT THE FABRIC
The canvas strap is a departure from the usual leather offerings from NOSTIME.
The material might be new, but the product still aligns with our philosophy; it ages beautifully, and it’s tough as hell.
The canvas comes from Kawashima Trading Co., under their Fujikinbai Hanpu line. They’ve been around since 1948 and first provided Hanpu canvas for sailing applications. Think of Hanpu as the great-grandfather of Cordura fabric.
Hanpu has the characteristic of getting softer to the touch as it ages while gaining a smoother color.
We’re also the first to create a canvas strap with a fully integrated leather backing. Durable and supple: this is surely the best of both worlds.
ABOUT THE COLOR
This is a color variation of our very popular OG-107 strap, which was the first canvas strap we released. “Khaki Shade” is inspired by the U.S. Army uniforms of the 1960s, which were the spiritual successors of the Commonwealth uniforms of the past. The official designation of the color is “Khaki Army Shade 1”, and the color was intended to be an all-purpose color that remains formal and professional whatever the environment. The same applies here: the Khaki Shade is an all-purpose color that is relevant no matter the time and occasion. Khaki will remain versatile whatever the watch: modern, vintage, sports, dress – for whatever occasion: formal or casual.
Our design is inspired from straps made during watch revolution in the 1950s. Important features include micro stitching, thinness, tapered look, and use of calfskin & antique leathers. These straps shall perfectly complement your vintage as well as contemporary timepieces.
