This is the same shoulder strap that accompanies the Rustic Brown Lara Bag. It is also the same strap available as an added option for the Julia's Travel Bag (Rustic Brown). The strap is hand-cut from rich, pullup leather: the same leather we use to make our Rustic Brown bags. The straps are reinforced with thick, waxed thread to strengthen and prevent stretching. Each end is neatly folded over and secured with a solid metal rivet in a beautiful brass color.
