“Henri by Eric Kim” wrist camera strap is hand crafted with care from start to finish. Rather than mass produced, these straps are handmade in small, limited quantity batches in order to preserve a level of excellent craftsmanship and quality. Made from durable, genuine leather, each rugged strap is unique–it will have subtle marks and over time it will bear the traces of your adventures.
The Henri wrist strap is light, comfortable, and ideal for smaller cameras. The Henri wrist strap fits any small to medium camera that has side lugs. It does NOT fit DSLR’s nor the Ricoh GR. It fits all Fujifilm cameras (X-Pro series, X100-series, etc), all Micro 4/3rds cameras (Olympus, Panasonic, etc), all Leica cameras (Leica Q, M, film M, etc), and most film cameras.
The Henri wrist strap is worn on your wrist and the leather adjustment loop can tighten and secure the camera to your hand.
Handmade in Crema Brown
The story behind the Henri Strap
The HENRI neck strap, HENRI wrist strap, and ERICKIM strap are both 100% handmade, 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.
Cindy 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:
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 want to give a fair and respectful wage to everyone involved. We do not run a wholesale factory, but support honest and beautiful work.
Reviews of the Henri Wrist Strap
Excellent product & presentation. Well crafted and thought out. High quality thick full grain leather & custom handmade craftsmanship. The best camera wrist strap available. You will not be disappointed. Will look better with age. Will last eternity. 5 Stars.
Ordered this strap as a gift with the Canon G9 X. Its simple, elegant and pairs wonderfully with the G9 or (I imagine) any point & shoot or rangefinders that fancy a bit of charm. Lovely packaging and an ideal gift as it turns out! The construction appears to be very solid and after attaching it to the Canon, have no worries. If you’re looking for a strap that compliments a good looking camera, this is one to consider.
I’ve always used neck straps with my cameras over the years (dating back to Canon AE-1, Canon digital, and now Fuji). Usually I sling them over my shoulder instead of hanging them around my neck. I got to the point where I wanted a change, and decided to give a wrist strap a try. It’s a lovely leather strap that pairs wonderfully with the retro design of the Fuji line of cameras. I love the color and soft texture. I only found out after I purchased it that the strap is from Vietnam, which happens to be my mother’s native country, so it’s great to be able to also offer support.
