SOLD OUT! Our braided vegetable-tanned leather bar wraps have good cushioning, a wonderful hand-feel, get grippier when wet and more beautiful with age.
The oil from your hands gives the leather a beautiful patina over time, just like your favorite baseball glove.
Made from vegetable-tanned leather 20mm wide lengths sewn together long enough to braid a wider-than-average drop bar.
Hand-finished edging assures it lays well.
The braided wraps are cut, skived, dyed, and edged by hand out of natural USA-made vegetable-tanned leather and finished with Walnut Studiolo's weatherproofing finish so it stands up just fine in the rain, like our Portland climate! The oils in your hands help condition the wraps and keep them in tip-top shape.
Braid and tie off with twine or electrical tape like your typical bar wrap. Comes with installation kit and instructions.
