Our Leica Paracord Straps are a matter that is very close to our hearts. A lot of passion and hard work has been put into creating those truly remarkable camera straps. We use a special braiding technique to create a broader surface for increased pressure distribution resulting in an extremely comfortable feel. At the same time, it adds to the rugged look of the paracord. The unique style of the Leica Paracord Straps reflects our inner drive to head out, seek adventure and capture the extraordinary.
At COOPH we truly love working with diverse materials. This not only allows us to make use of every material’s distinct properties, but it also gives our products a unique touch, that makes them stand out from the rest – and our Leica Paracord Straps do just that. They are made from high-quality paracord, which is braided around locally tanned leather, sourced solely from German-raised cattle. To top it all off, we use strong metal ring fasteners to make sure that you can carry your camera safely to wherever your search for the next great picture may take you.
We have been experimenting with crafting camera straps from paracord before COOPH even began. There is a certain fascination about building something with your bare hands. If you buy a hand-made product, you can literally feel the love and dedication that flows into the creation of those truly unique pieces of artisan craftwork. To produce our paracord straps we were looking for a company that has mastered the art of processing unique materials in combination with leather and we found it in Klagenfurt. Carefully braided by hand in a small workshop every strap is the result of highly skilled workmanship and a distinct 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 set ourselves the highest standards in terms of quality, and we are always looking for 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 Paracord 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 Paracord Strap was announced the 2019 Bronze 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.
