ERIC KIM STRAP: JUST SHOOT IT.

Bespoke.

JOSH WHITE X ERIC KIM STRAP

Made of supple artisinal leather, ERIC KIM WRIST STRAP will wear beautifully with you. Like the Japanese aesthetic of ‘wabi-sabi’ — each strap is beautifully imperfect. Over time it will bear the patina and traces of your photographic adventures.

Motivation.

ERIC KIM STRAP is your constant friend, encouraging you to shoot more. To make more photos with personal meaning, with more intentionality, and with more soul.

The more you wear ERIC KIM STRAP with your camera on your wrist, the more you will be motivated to shoot, and express your creative spirit.

Subtle.

ERIC KIM STRAP is subtle. All black with brass accents. No pretentious markings or brands. It will disappear into your wrist, and complement your simple style. ERIC KIM STRAP won’t distract you — it will encourage you to make more photos.

ERIC KIM STRAP is robust. It is strong, elegant, and will endure.

Investment.

ERIC KIM STRAP is your new companion for any camera: your Ricoh GR, Fujifilm, Leica, Sony, compact camera, or small DSLR.

JUST SHOOT IT.

ERIC KIM STRAP will not make you a better photographer, but will your companion that will never betray you.

JUST SHOOT IT.

THE STORY BEHIND THE ERIC KIM STRAP

Cindy: All of our leather products — the HENRI COLLECTION (neck strap, wrist strap, wrist strap pro, shoulder strap, chroma) and ERIC KIM COLLECTION (wrist strap, neck strap) are 100% leather and handmade and crafted with care from start to finish. Each Henri strap is hand-made by two of our friends, Lan and Uyen who are a leather craftsmen and artists in Saigon.

Eric and I are their clients and collaborators, and we worked together with them to design the strap. Since they are our friends and collaborators, they have always set the price for the straps to cover their costs and labor. Lan and Uyen source the leather, handmake the straps during the weekdays between music gigs, and ship them to California from Saigon.

Rather than mass produced, these are handmade in small, limited-quantity batches in order to preserve a level of excellent craftsmanship and quality. Each strap is unique.

Once they get to California, Eric and I, (and now with the help of our loving and supportive family) work to quality check, finish, and package each strap:

Note: Depending on the current season and availability, the packaging of your Henri Neck Strap may be different than above.

Why buy from HAPTIC aka Cindy & Eric?

Unlike huge, anonymous factories, this is the entire operation: Eric, me, my family, Lan, and Uyen. We are transparent about the labor practices behind the straps because we are proud and love each product we make.

We live in Vietnam currently and are very cognizant of global inequality, especially in labor practices. This is why we price our products the way we do. We  give a fair and respectful wage to everyone involved. We do not run a wholesale factory, but support honest and beautiful work.
