The Fusion series stands for a blend of materials and colors fused together resulting in a unique and hard wearing strap. This is now the second iteration of the Fusion strap, as we have further tweaked the strap construction for increased durability.
Due to the way these are constructed, the construction of a Fusion strap takes twice as long as the construction of a Classic strap. That ought to tell you something. The base layer is a fantastic calfskin, in a nice brown color. This is a bark tanned calfskin, tanned in Italy, and it will pick up a beautiful patina over time. As a result, the shade of brown will also evolve over the strap's lifetime. This is considered a feature.
Fused on this base layer you will find a special blend of cotton, canvas and nylon in a warm earthy brown. The canvas edge will gently fray and age along with the leather. The special blend is made to resist tearing. Due to the weave of the material, one thread coming loose will not undo the entire canvas blend so no worries there. We cut these slightly oversized, so that once the canvas and leather loosens up a bit you still have a snug fit between the springbars.
The Fusion series is also available in other colors.
