    Grant Straps - tailored eye wear retainers

    Hello Dappered community,

    My name is Grant Desselle and I will soon be launching my company Grant Straps based out of New Orleans. We hand craft model-specific sunglasses straps for Ray Ban products utilizing leather and hemp. We'll be launching in mid March with straps fitting Aviators and models sharing the same style of ear piece, soon to be followed with wayfarer and more as necessitated by requests and demand.

    I'd love to hear your feedback, comments, questions, and suggestions as I prepare to launch in the upcoming weeks. If you can dig it, I'd greatly appreciate any help in spreading the word. Visit our coming soon page http://grantstraps.com (soon to be redesigned). You can also stay up to date by visiting us on facebook @ http://facebook.com/grantstraps.

    Hope to hear from y'all soon.

    Best,

    Grant Desselle

    To be honest, I'm not really in your target audience (as I don't use these types of products), but I would be interested in learning more about the leather and hemp types/quality/colors that you plan on using.

    Would you care to share some specifics about the products?

    Thanks!

    Mcadamsandwich,

    Thank you for your questions and my apologies for the delayed response. We are currently using sheepskin; however, we are experimenting with a selection a cow leathers we've recently sourced. We plan to launch with natural colored and black hemp cord. The cord differs from commonly used twine in that it's created using a 'double twisting' method. This method uses multi-plied yarns that are then twisted as opposed the twine's single strands twisted together. The result is a smoother more uniform finish. Please keep the questions coming, and thank you again for you inquiry.

    Best,

    Grant Desselle
