Everybody knows about the obvious advantages of a camera strap. It enables you to bring your camera along while keeping your hands free at the same time. But there is a lot more to this essential piece of equipment. We wanted our camera straps to provide perfect solutions for every photographer and all kinds of cameras. Our Leica Double Rope Strap is designed specifically for carrying heavier cameras with large lenses. Made of two ropes instead of one, it provides additional strength and creates a bigger surface leading to improved stress distribution on your neck so you can stay loose and shoot in style.
When you manufacture camera straps, choosing the right material is key. Designed to carry the weight of bigger cameras, our Leica Double Rope Straps just had to be made of a robust material that has proven its durability under extreme stress. So what better material could you think of then high-quality mountaineering rope? The heavy-duty material ensures the safety of your camera, while providing a rugged yet stylish look. The end pieces are made of vegetable-tanned Italian leather and are firmly sewn onto the wear-resistant climbing ropes by hand. The Leica Double Rope Straps are available with two different fastening options: you can choose between SO straps or solid metal rings.
There is something fascinating about hand-made products. You can literally feel the love and dedication that flows into the creation of those truly unique pieces of artisan craftwork. That is why we attach great priority to finding production facilities that meet the standards, we set ourselves in terms of quality, local production, and social responsibility. Our Leica Double Rope Straps are produced in a small family-run workshop in Hungary. Carefully crafted by hand every strap is the result of skilled workmanship combined with a passion for detail.
Longevity and quality are two key features that can be found in all COOPH products. When it comes to our cooperations, we are looking for those same two traits. Establishing a long and fruitful partnership is only possible when the partners pursue the same goals and share the same values – and in Leica we have found a perfect match. We both have a similar mind set when it comes to producing high-value photo equipment and finding innovative solutions to existing problems. It is not surprising that our longstanding collaboration gave birth to some outstanding products of impeccable quality and unique style – such as the Leica Double Rope Strap.
When you follow your passion, it is always gratifying to see that the work and effort you put into giving shape to your vision doesn’t go unnoticed. That is why we were more than proud when the Leica Rope Strap was announced the 2020 winner of the highly respected European Product Design Award. The award-winning products are elected by a professional jury, recognizing the year’s most unique product designs conceived to improve our daily lives with a practical and beautiful creation.
At COOPH we live and breathe photography. We understand the needs of photographers and are passionate about creating products that offer clear benefits to our community, resulting in some of the most iconic items in photographic history. But our ambition doesn’t end there. Constantly striving to take on greater social and ecological responsibility we work closely with integrative companies.
