Black Wax Buttero Strap is the greatest magician who will unveil what's underneath this heavy makeup. A dense black wax has been stuffed on one side of the leather hide, fully covered the surface and giving the look of a matte waxy layer on top of the strap. A smooth, pleasant touch to hold with a bit of rigidity to help it build character continuously. The magic began when you start wearing it. Spanning over months, while some wax has been rubbed off, this strap will astonish you by revealing a beautiful undertone in unique patterns giving way to a distinctive patina.
You probably wonder if you can polish the strap at first when you receive it to see the undertone. The answer is YES. You can buff with canvas cloth to remove some of the wax to get just the right look to start with. Kindly note the wax is durable and will take some effort to remove. However, it will not look as natural as if you wear it off. By far, this leather develops immense character over time and is one of the most exciting leathers to have on a strap.
Two straps in one, why not!?
