More straps pictures
Spanish ring knots on reproduced Mercedes-Benz Ponton straps
Due to "weight" of “Sun visors, straps”-article I moved the majority of the pictures from the disassembly and remaking galleries of the strap section into this, separate article. I hope you don’t mind.
As usual, see the pictures' title texts for information about what parts you're seeing. I do however keep the comments to a minimum and let the pictures speak for themselves. Since I’m not a saddler the risk is that I will say something stupid.
In these pictures the saddler takes one of the two leather straps I got from mr Apels apart in order to understand how they were made.
In these pictures you can see how David from Sadelmakarmästarna made new straps in leather including some test items. The leather came from Holger Merker Autosattler in Hamburg.
