The Original Leather Sunglass Strap

Growing up in Connecticut summers were spent swimming in the Long Island Sound, hiking the Westwoods Trails and fishing out of Beebe Marina. There was nothing better than throwing on some shades and heading out into a hot summer's day.

One summer I found myself looking for a higher quality, more stylish sunglass strap. Unable to find an alternative to the functional yet not so stylish "Croakies" I set out to create my own. It was a simple concept, why not a leather sunglass strap?

Through the mentorship of Frank Clegg, an American leather craftsman, designer and the nicest guy you'll meet, I began learning the leather craft. After launching our first sunglass strap in 2009 we've continued to improve the product to what is now our patent-pending design. Sounders leather sunglass straps are enjoyed by outdoorsmen and women in New England and beyond.

We hope you'll take pride in wearing The Original Leather Sunglass Strap.
