Sew-on Leather Bar Wraps

Durable in the elements, warm to the touch, and grippier when wet, our natural leather is a performance material with a clean look and outstanding handfeel for bicycle bar wraps. 

Like our other easy to sew on products, the Sew-on Bar Wraps come as a kit that you stitch on yourself with pre-punched stitching holes, needle, thread, and instructions. 

The natural oils in your hands burnish  our high-quality American leather into a glossy patina that will last you a lifetime. You get to keep the patina you've earned: you can transfer it from bike to bike, and over the years it will only get more beautiful with use and time.

Fits drop bars, pursuit bars, bullhorns, or any other 1” (25.4mm) diameter bars.

Leather sew on wraps

Like other reviews I read it was much easier to sew on the wraps than expected. I had a few hiccups but that was my own fault (missed a stitch, didn't account for shrinkage when cutting off the excess). I reached out to the Walnut team for guidance and they were quick to help problem solve. The wraps are beautiful and may buy another pair down the road!

Leather Bar Wraps

This is the 4th set of handlebar wraps I purchased- 2 black, 1 deep brown, 1 coffee color (Brown and Black are my favorites). I installed them on my 4 old 70/80s Italian bicycles. The bar wraps are of excellent quality and they look amazing on my old Colnago, Pinarellos, and Masi. It was hard to stitch it the very first time without wrinkles, but it wasn't hard and the video was very helpful.

All of these bikes with leather wraps looked simple and elegant in these, and riding the bikes in summer or spring was a lot of fun with these wraps. However, it was very hard to ride the bike on steep hills with certain types of gloves ("not all") in cold weather as the gloves start slipping on leather. I do not take these steel bikes out on salted roads, and I use an old aluminum bike for commuting in cold weather. This is something to keep in mind as I had a bad day commuting with a wrong set of gloves.

I have decided to install only Walnutstudiolo leather products on all my bikes (except the winter commuter) as they are not expensive, look amazing and last long. Finally I like supporting the small family owned businesses whose expertise is in handcrafted items.

Great quality product

Very pleased with quality and final look of wraps. Need for more detailed video instructions for install (not as easy as it looks), and a customer forum to deal with common issues. Also suggest adding a 2-width pattern to make it easier to wrap bars running brake housings underneath, and designing a leather cover to fit over rubber brake hoods (I think these would sell well in the vintage/custom market).

Good Product Great Customer Service

Walnut has excellent customer service. I had problems with a recent order of handlebar wraps -- the leather was tearing as I was tightening the stitching. Walnut replied quickly when I contacted them about the issue. They were completely understanding and eager to make things right. They went above and beyond to ensure that I received replacement wraps and had all the information I needed to install them without further issues. The whole encounter took less than a week, and every employee I encountered was super friendly and helpful.

These were much easier to sew on than I’d expected, and they look and feel amazing (especially paired with a dark brown Brooks saddle). I’m impressed!
