Introducing 4V: Premium Italian Leather Camera Straps

Take style to another level when out with your camera – with hand crafted Italian leather camera straps from 4V Design! With a combination of contemporary Italian design, using the best Italian ‘cuoio’ leather raised on Tuscan hillsides. Cuoio leather is a much heavier weight and more durable than the world renowned Italian leather used in fine clothing, and is perfect for making premium quality camera straps.

Traditional craftsmen in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility carefully and lovingly follow tried and tested methods, handed down from generation to generation, to construct the range of twenty-nine carefully selected products. The range includes straps to fit most cameras from compact cameras, to high end DSLRs.

The six collections of 4V comprise twenty-nine selected lines:

‘ALA Top’ Camera straps (leather)

‘ALA’ Camera straps (leather / canvas)

‘Lusso’ Camera straps (in slim, medium & large)

‘Classic’ Neck Straps (medium & large)

‘Ergo’ Wrist straps – for mirrorless or compact cameras

‘Watch’ Wrist straps – for smaller compacts and some mobile phones!

4V stands for victory, passion and above all quality and comfort.
