This alligator hide is a dark brown (cordovan in direct sunlight) color. Handmade in the USA.

The History of the Leather Sunglass Strap

In the summer of 2009 on a trip to Nantucket for the Figawi sailing race our founder Chris Necklas found himself looking for a higher quality, more durable sunglass strap. Unable to find anyone making them, and with frayed "Croakies" in hand, he set out to create his own. The concept seemed simple, why not a leather sunglass strap?

Fortunate enough to gain the mentorship of Frank Clegg, Chris began learning the leather craft. Countless nights and weekends were spent in Frank's shop working on what would become the first leather sunglass strap.

Now over 10 years later Sounder Goods is a small business manufacturing the finest sunglass straps in the world, along with other well crafted adventure accessories, right here in Massachusetts. We hope Sounders Original Leather Sunglass Straps serve you well in your pursuits of sport & leisure.
