Leather has been in use for over 4000 years. In fact, it was probably one of the first things that early humans used to cover themselves and the things that they owned. If you've ever owned a leather jacket or worn leather shoes, you know how effective it can be at protecting from wind, rain, cold, and even snow. With a little oil and regular care, leather can last for years or even decades without intervention. By the same token, bamboo has been a staple across Asia for about as long as anyone can remember. These days, it's used in everything from bedsheets and suits (please don't buy those) to food and furniture. In our home city of Hong Kong, bamboo is even used as scaffolding, on everything from the smallest to the largest of buildings. These are both amazing materials for all sorts of reasons.
So with that in mind, it makes sense that we celebrate the two in some way. It might seem strange to use a bamboo pattern on a leather strap for something quite so technical as an Apple Watch, but that's the beauty of it. The Apple Watch may be a modern marvel of technology and design, but it's balanced out with a beautiful leather strap with a bamboo pattern. Designed to fit models 1-5, make sure you choose the correct size for your watch. (Not sure about what size your watch is? It's engraved on the back.)

We tend to recommend matching your leathers (so brown watch with a brown belt and brown shoes), but there's a certain nonchalance in having the wrong color watch strap. There's no charm to having a mismatched belt and shoes though, so don't do that.
