We are proud to release our latest collaboration, this time with the denim legends from Tenue de Nimes. We gave birth to this idea by sending bits and pieces of my oldest Tenue de Nîmes jeans to the legendary Kaufmann company in Germany. Kaufmann is a third generation, German based company, specialized in creating accessories with pure artisanal workmanship, down to the very last detail. A perfect watch strap takes effort and craftsmanship to achieve the utmost in quality. After receiving the first samples we felt that the missing link within the concept was the perfect untouched denim fabric. This is where and when Tenue de Nîmes got involved. Together with fabric master Marco Bonzanni at Kurabo they selected two beautiful raw denim fabrics to utilize in our straps: A sky blue selvage fabric and a double black fabric, sourced from the legendary Kurabo Mill in Japan. Please note that it takes nothing less than 85 work steps to complete a handmade watch strap. Hence, the factory craftsmen glue, stitch, grind and sew every single strap in house. The result is two beautiful and unique Tenue de Nimes x AVW watch straps that will complement any vintage or new time-piece out there with a lug-width of 20mm!
Tenue de Nîmes x AVW Denim Strap Blue
Unique high-quality denim strap made in collaboration with Tenue de Nimes. The strap is produced by Kaufmann in Germany and with the use of a sky blue selvage fabric from the Kurabo Mill in Japan. Made to fit watches with a lug-width of 20mm and is combined best with sporty or tool watches. Despite a complicated production process, getting the strong and heavy denim stitched to durable rubber, we managed to make a strap that will last a life time.
