Kimono Design Watch Straps by  Tong Cheuk Fung

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Watches have not been as strong as they are now since the invention of the iPhone. That being the case I found these handmade watch straps inspired by Kimono fabric, Tatami-beri (the edging of tatami’s) and high-school buttons as well as other Japanese motifs particularly interesting.

Tong Cheuk Fung began his journey in designing and creating handmade watch straps after meeting craftsmen in Kyoto.
